WASHINGTON, Sept 19 (Reuters) - A Chinese delegation will visit American farm regions with U.S. officials next week in an effort to build goodwill amid ongoing trade negotiations, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told reporters on Thursday.

“They want to see the production of agriculture. I think they want to build goodwill,” Perdue said, adding that it was unclear where specifically they would visit. (Reporting by Humeyra Pamuk; Writing by Makini Brice; Editing by Susan Heavey and Chris Reese)
