The Xinhua report and Li's remarks are a positive uptick. It is also unclear if the two countries' leaders may soon meet.
With speculation that Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Donald Trump may hold a summit in the near future to end a trade war, Li expressed readiness to make the nation's market more open and transparent to foreigners.
