US commerce chief in China for talks

US Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo landed in Beijing on Sunday, kicking off a four-day official visit to China. 

In what is the first such trip by any top American commerce official in the past seven years, Raimondo will be holding talks with her Chinese counterparts during the visit.

The visit comes amid tense trade relations between the world's top two economies as Washington moves to block Beijing's access to advanced technology, including semiconductors.
