Trade dispute with US a political challenge for China's Xi Jinping

A failure to reach agreement in this week's talks, the 11th round of negotiations so far, would be 'deeply embarrassing and somewhat damaging,' for Xi.
Xi faces time pressures from the party's inner dynamics. He is expected to call a meeting of the powerful Central Committee by October at the latest, and needs to show he has the trade dispute well in hand.
