Reuters reports China will submit next week its “negative list” offer of sectors that would remain off-limits to U.S. investment in a U.S.-China bilateral investment treaty (BIT), Vice Premier Wang Yang said on Monday. Wang made the comments in opening remarks to the economic track of the Strategic and Economic Dialogue talks in Beijing. U.S. officials have said a negative list that greatly reduces the number of off-limits sectors is critical to reaching a deal. U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew also said he looked forward to seeing the new negative list when U.S. and Chinese BIT negotiators meet next week in Washington.
