The European Union is working with the U.S. to plan two meetings in the first half of the year to discuss efforts to expand their cooperation on technology and trade, a senior EU official said, as they aim to compete better with China.

Valdis Dombrovskis, a European Commission vice president, said in an interview that the principals in the U.S.-EU Trade and Technology Council are aiming for two meetings this spring -- one virtual and another in-person session, likely this May in Europe.
