CHINA: Resumes Textile Trade Talks With US
Second round negotiations on textile trade between China and the US are due to start today.
James Leonard, who leads the textile office at the US Department of Commerce, has travelled to Beijing to discuss the issue with his Chinese counterparts.
The negotiations lead up to talks on Monday under the US-China Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade.
Along with China's surging textile exports to the US, the JCCT agenda will include trademark piracy in China and US efforts to get Beijing to open its government procurement to foreign competition.
Beijing is thought to be keen to negotiate a textile agreement similar to one it struck with the European Union in June, which capped the growth of certain Chinese textile exports until 2007.
