WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will make a one-day trip to China next week to attend a Group of 20 seminar on reform of the international monetary system, Treasury announced on Friday.

During the March 31 trip, Geithner will also hold talks with Chinese officials ahead of this year's U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, which is to be held in Washington later this year at an unspecified date.
