Some Chinese enterprises have inquired with US exporters about purchasing agricultural produce and applied for the lifting of tariffs on the products in accordance with the regulations of the Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council, Chinese authorities said Sunday. 

"To meet China's consumer needs, relevant Chinese enterprises intend to continue to import agricultural produce from the United States," the authorities said. 
Chinese authorities also hope the United States implements its relevant promises.

It comes after Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump met during the G20 meeting and agreed to de-escalate tension in the year-long trade disputes.
