Mnuchin and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer are in Beijing this week for the latest negotiations in what could be the talks' end game. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will go to Washington for another round of talks scheduled for next week.
Beijing and Washington have cited progress on issues including intellectual property and forced technology transfer to help end a conflict marked by tit-for-tat tariffs that have cost both sides billions of dollars, disrupted supply chains and roiled financial markets.
Mnuchin, speaking to Fox Business Network in an interview that aired on Monday, said the trade negotiations aimed at enforcement is close to finished.
