China and the USA will hold face-to-face trade negotiations in Washington in the coming weeks, after a rapid deterioration in relations last month left global investors reeling amid increasing evidence the conflict is harming both nations. Beijing hit back with retaliatory levies, and let its yuan currency fall sharply to offset some of the tariff pressure.
Last Friday, China's central bank cut banks' reserve requirements for a seventh time since early a year ago to free up more funds for lending, days after a Cabinet meeting signalled that more policy loosening may be imminent.
Analyst expectations had been that a falling yuan would offset some cost pressures. That demand will prove to be a hard compromise for the US, as Washington claims some tariffs must remain in place to hold Beijing accountable for any agreements it makes.

China and the U.S. have agreed to hold high-level talks in early October in Washington, the first in-person discussions since a failed meeting on trade at the end of July. Imports dropped 5.6% on-year in August, slightly less than an expected 6.0% fall and unchanged from July's 5.6% decline.
Aside from that, followed by Sunday's (September 8th) China data which unleashed further upheaval on China's economy which had been scuffling to grapple with a basket of baleful turn of events on its trade dispute with United States, several analysts were pointing towards further weakness in the second-largest economy of the world, while some of them had underscored a more pressing requirement of monetary stimulus to smoothen up the nation's domestic financing amid growing obstacles in the wake of an escalated Sino-US trade dispute.
The governments agreed to meet again in September but that was postponed to October.
