Reuters report that China and the United States have agreed to keep talking about their trade dispute, the Chinese government said on Tuesday,
as U.S. President Donald Trump said he thought recent discussions in Beijing would be successful.
The slightly more optimistic comments came after both sides ramped up their trade war,
with China announcing details of new tariffs against U.S. imports on Monday, following a U.S. move last week to target Chinese imports.
The US Trade Representative's office said it planned to hold a public hearing next month
on the possibility of imposing duties of up to 25 percent on a further 300 billion dollars worth of imports from China.
