Day 1 of US-China trade talks ends with hopes for limited deal

A currency agreement would likely follow one that was largely agreed in February by Washington and Beijing that would parallel China’s prior G20 pledges to avoid currency manipulation to gain a trade advantage, said Craig Allen, president of the US-China Business Council. “It’s time to roll that thing out,” said Allen, who also met with Liu on Wednesday. “It would be a positive, and would make it easier for the US side to sign a deal.”
