U.S., Chinese trade deputies seen meeting Friday-U.S. Chamber CEO

WASHINGTON, Sept 16 (Reuters) - U.S. and Chinese deputy trade negotiators are expected to meet on Friday, with senior negotiators likely to meet about a week and a half later, U.S. Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue said on Monday, citing a conversation with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

Donohue, speaking at a news conference to urge U.S. congressional approval of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, said that Lighthizer “did indicate that there was some movement in the direction of purchasing of (U.S.) agricultural products and other issues.” (Reporting by David Lawder; Editing by Angus MacSwan)
