Thu 21st November, 2019 12:31pm
Nov 21 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index futures were
slightly up on Thursday, after a report that China had invited
top U.S. officials for a new round of face-to-face trade talks
boosted sentiment.
    China will strive to reach an initial trade agreement with
the United States as both sides keep communication channels
open, the Chinese commerce ministry said on Thursday, in an
attempt to allay fears talks might be unravelling.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N2811ZV
