Kudlow says U.S.-China trade talks to continue in person in coming week

WASHINGTON, July 3 (Reuters) - Top representatives from the United States and China will meet in the coming week to continue trade talks between the world's largest economies, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Wednesday.

"Those talks will continue in earnest this coming week," Kudlow told reporters.

The two sides have already been in phone communication. U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed during a meeting in Japan last week to relaunch talks that had stalled in May.

Kudlow later backed away slightly from his timeline, saying that the face-to-face talks would begin "soon." (Reporting by Jeff Mason in Washington Editing by James Dalgleish)
