WASHINGTON/BEIJING -- China is expected to present a roadmap on structural reforms to the U.S. when senior officials meet Wednesday and Thursday in Washington.

The two countries are holding high-level talks for the first time since last June, when U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross traveled to Beijing. Even as Ross contends that a deal is still "miles and miles" away, some expect a breakthrough now that both economies are showing signs of weakness.
