US Treasury chief Yellen and China’s No. 2 aim for improved communication after trade disputes


AP Business Writer

BEIJING (AP) — U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Chinese Premier Li Qiang are expressing hopes for better communication as Yellen appeals to Beijing not to let frustration over U.S. curbs on technology exports disrupt economic cooperation. Both governments used positive terms on Friday to describe Yellen’s visit to China’s capital and stressed the importance of U.S.-China economic ties. Several senior U.S. officials are expected to travel to Beijing to encourage Chinese leaders to revive interactions between the governments of the world’s two largest economies. Disputes over technology, security and other respective irritants have disrupted contacts between China and the U.S. Yellen appealed on Friday for “regular channels of communication” and “healthy economic competition.”
