Trade negotiators from the US and China are expected to discuss the implementation of the phase one trade deal in the coming days
Agricultural purchases and the dollar-yuan exchange rate will also be among the topics to be discussed in the virtual meeting that may take place as early as this week, though a date has not been finalised, according to the report.
'Fine' in shape despite tensions
Last week, US President Donald Trump unveiled bans on US transactions with the China-based owners of messaging app WeChat and video-sharing app TikTok.
Citing legal authority from the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and the National Emergencies Act, Trump had earlier this month issued twin executive orders, one for each app, to take effect in 45 days. They call on the commerce secretary to define the banned dealings by that time.
While the wording of the orders is vague, some experts said it appears intended to bar the popular apps from the Apple and Google app stores, which could effectively remove them from distribution in the US.
The report comes a day after White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said that the US-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.
