Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will meet with a top Chinese official this week, possibly opening the door to a discussion over the value of China's currency.
Geithner, who has been in India this week, will add a trip to Beijing to meet with Vice Premier Wang Qishan on Thursday.
"The Secretary and Vice Premier have been working together to find an opportunity to meet in person for some time," Treasury spokesman Andrew Williams said in a statement to CNN.
The focus of the talks is unclear. However, it's expected that the value of the yuan could be the main topic of their discussion.
