 The Australian dollar rose against its major counterparts in late Asian session on Friday amid risk appetite as investors welcomed the news of a new round of US-China talks in the coming days.

Chinese officials welcomed a call by US Treasury Secretary Stephen Menuchin for new talks. However, US President Donald Trump softened market optimism as the US chased "without pressure to make a deal with China."

Two-thirds of US companies in China said they were hurt by the $ 50 billion initial tariffs in tariffs introduced by the United States and China.

The Trump Administration is preparing another $ 200 billion worth of Chinese goods, a move many fear will escalate the conflict between the world's two largest economies.

In the meantime, a set of Chinese data painted a mixed picture of the economy.

China's retail sales rose 9.0 percent year-on-year in August, according to the National Bureau of Statistics, beating forecasts for a 8.8 percent increase.

Industrial production advanced 6.1 percent a year - matching expectations and rising from 6.0 percent in the previous month.

Fixed asset investment rose 5.3 percent a year, and expectations were shy at 5.6 percent and fell from 5.5 percent the previous month. The unemployment rate surveyed came in at 5.0 percent - down from 5.1 percent in July.
