"The US and Chinese working groups [on trade and economic issues] will hold constructive talks on the implementation of important agreements, reached by the leaders of the two countries during their Argentina meeting", the ministry said. Officialsfrom both countries spoke on the phone Friday, it added.

The arrest highlighted the intensifying clash between the world's top two economies over technology.

After a global sell-off triggered by Apple's warning of lower revenues, Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index climbed 2.2 percent to 25, 626.03 and the Shanghai Composite Index jumped 2.1 percent to 2, 514.87.

The two governments have raised tariffs on billions of dollars of each other's goods in the fight over USA complaints that Beijing violates its market-opening obligations by stealing or pressuring companies to hand over technology. -China trade war and a slowdown in demand hit production in many economies, offering little reason for optimism as the new year begins.

Deputy US Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish will lead the Washington delegation and will discuss "implementing the important consensus" reached by Mr Trump and Mr Xi at the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina previous year, China's commerce ministry said. For 2018, the Dow Jones Industrial Average - America's highest-profile stock market benchmark - fell almost 6 per cent, its worst performance since 2008. Cutting a deal with Beijing could help at least reduce the threat. Growth is expected by the government to have eased to around 6.5 percent in 2018, down from 6.9 percent in 2017.

China's economy has been decelerating since the government pulled back on bank lending a year ago to try to curb a run-up in debt.

The U.S. manufacturing sector has begun to slow, and the Institute of Supply Management's survey of corporate purchasing managers on Monday showed the largest monthly decline since the depths of the recession in December 2008.

Auto sales in China plunged 16 per cent in November from a year earlier. But economists say the USA economy could be slowing and uncertainty in global economic fortunes has led to volatile daily swings in stock indexes in recent weeks.

Instead, more than 70 percent of USA firms operating in southern China are putting off further investment there and moving some or all of their manufacturing to other countries.

"Clearly both sides are feeling economic stress, but both have high ambitions".

As Chinese tariffs take a bigger bite out of profits, USA manufacturers with operations there are scrambling to find alternatives. "However, these reasons can only take you so far..."
