U.S. Chamber Expects Chinese Delegation to Visit Early in Biden Administration

Washington, DC — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce sees “every indication” that a high-ranking Chinese delegation will visit Washington early in the administration of President-elect Joe Biden, a top Chamber official said in a Reuters report.

Myron Brilliant, head of international affairs for the business group, told reporters on Wednesday that such a visit could help lay the groundwork for progress toward an expanded trade agreement.

A Biden spokesman declined to comment on the prospects on the potential visit by Chinese officials.
