BEIJING: Ahead of fresh high-level trade talks this week, China is not conceding to US demands to ease curbs on technology companies, the Financial Times reported on Sunday, citing three people briefed on the discussions.

US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are scheduled to travel to Beijing for talks starting on Mar 28, the White House said on Saturday, report agencies.

The FT report said Beijing had yet to offer "meaningful concessions" to US requests for China to stop discriminating against foreign cloud computing providers, to reduce limits on overseas data transfers.
