MUMBAI (Reuters) - Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will meet with Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan in Beijing on Thursday on his way home from financial partnership talks in India, a U.S. Treasury spokesman said on Wednesday.

"The meeting will take place on Thursday, April 8, and it will be closed press," said the spokesman, Andrew Williams.

"The secretary and the vice premier have been working together to find an opportunity to meet in person for some time. The meeting was confirmed yesterday," he said.

Williams declined to talk about the meeting's subject matter and said there would be no further statements about it. (Reporting by David Lawder; Editing by Tony Munroe)
