A high level Chinese trade delegation arrived in Washington on Monday for two days of talks with its United States counterparts.

The Chinese delegation is headed by Vice-Premier Wu Yi. She will co-chair the talks with US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. The Chinese delegation includes as many as 16 ministerial-level officials.

The meetings are part of the second Strategic Economic Dialogue between the two countries. Delegates are expected to review progress since a December round of meetings in Beijing.

The initial dialogue was launched by Chinese President Hu Jintao and US President George W.Bush in September 2006.
