Chinese officials to visit US farmland as trade talks continue US agriculture chief

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Chinese delegation will visit American farm regions with U.S. officials next week in an effort to build goodwill amid ongoing trade negotiations, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told reporters on Thursday.

"They want to see the production of agriculture. I think they want to build goodwill," Perdue said. The delegation will travel with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, but it was unclear where specifically they would visit, he added.
