Top Chinese economic adviser meets with Dimon, other US executives

Chinese President Xi Jinping’s top economic adviser huddled Wednesday afternoon with a group of prominent American business executives at the start of his visit to Washington, according to people familiar with the matter. The meeting between Liu He and business luminaries, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. CEO James Dimon and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. co-chief operating officer David Solomon, came a day before Mr. Liu is slated to see top Trump administration officials amid rising economic tensions between the two countries. In addition to Messrs. Dimon and Solomon, the group included BlackRock Inc. Chief Laurence Fink, Qualcomm Inc. CEO Steve Mollenkopf, Marc Allen, president of the international division at Boeing Co., and Evan Greenberg, CEO of insurer Chubb Ltd., who also chairs the US-China Business Council.
