The Wall Street Journal reported that the talks in Washington would take place on August 21 and 22, just before $16 billion in new USA tariffs on Chinese goods take effect, along with an equal amount of retaliatory tariffs from Beijing.
A senior USA government official confirmed the talks and said: "We expect to discuss steps to achieve a more balanced trading relationship".
Chinese stocks also reversed losses Thursday morning after the announcement of further trade talks.

Ali, an emergency services worker, suffered a fractured eye socket while Mr Hale, a former soldier, was left with concussion. Mbargo doorman Andrew Cunningham, 37, alleged he was offered £300 by Stokes to let him and Mr Hales back into the nightclub.
The last official round of talks was in early June when US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross met Chinese Vice Premier Liu He in Beijing.
The Chinese government did not say what topics would be discussed at the upcoming meeting, but reiterated Beijing's stance that it opposes "unilateralism and trade protectionism".
China and the United States have engaged in a round of reciprocal tariffs since July 6, when Washington officially imposed 25 percent tariffs on more than 800 Chinese products worth $34 billion.
Elon Musk's tweet draws Tesla investor lawsuit over share price swing
All Musk said in his Tuesday tweet about taking the company private was that the financing for the deal was "secured". Short-sellers aim to profit by selling borrowed shares, hoping to buy them back later at a lower price.
The meeting would end what had been a lull in talks between the two sides, but it is unclear whether it will take place before or after August 23, when Washington is due to activate additional tariffs on $16 billion of Chinese goods.
News of the meeting boosted the yuan and aided China's stock market, Reuters reported.
China is sending a trade envoy to Washington in a renewed effort to end a worsening tariff dispute that has raised worries it will chill global economic growth. The move was in response to a threat from Washington to increase tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25 per cent from 10 per cent. Prices of Chinese farm goods fell amid hopes that supplies of United States soybeans, used to make cooking oil and animal feed, may resume if talks bring an end to the dispute. But Trump backed away from the agreement and the two nations have been locked in a tit-for-tat trade war ever since. "Other Countries should not be allowed to come in and steal the wealth of our great United States of America".
