It said that Agricultural purchases and the dollar-yuan exchange rates will also be among the topics to be discussed.

The discussion will be in the virtual meeting that may take place as early as this week, though a date has not been finalised, according to the report bloom.bg/3h1krsw.

On Aug, 7, 2020, U.S. President Donald Trump unveiled bans on U.S. transactions with the China-based owners of messaging app WeChat and video-sharing app TikTok.

The report comes a day after White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said that the U.S.-China trade deal was in fine shape, despite recent tensions between the two countries over Hong Kong, the handling of the coronavirus outbreak, data security and trade tariffs.
