Trump Discusses Trade Issues With China's Xi

03 November, 2018, 03:52 | Author: Dave Hampton

Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter, later reported that Trump wants to reach a trade agreement with China at the G20 meeting and that after the call with Xi, he had asked officials to begin drafting possible terms.

"Those discussions are moving along nicely", Trump wrote on Twitter.

US-China talks have made little progress since May, when Trump put a stop to a deal that would see China buy more energy and agricultural goods to narrow the trade deficit.

Reports earlier Friday said that President Trump had asked officials to prepare a draft of a trade agreement with the world's second largest economy, prompting the Dow to rise.

Hours later, however, the US Justice Department accused another Chinese firm of unfair practices, part of an across-the-board pressure campaign by the Trump administration targeting China.

The Chinese president was also quoted as saying that he was willing to meet Trump in Argentina during the G-20 summit. "China does not want to see this", he said, according to Xinhua.

Trump administration officials have said that trade talks with China can not resume until it comes up with specific actions it is willing take to meet USA demands for sweeping changes to policies on technology transfers, industrial subsidies and market access.

The leaders of the world's two largest economies made the remarks after their first publicly disclosed telephone conversation in nearly six months. The Chinese president also said he would like to meet Trump at the G20.

"There's no massive movement to deal with China", Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council, told CNBC.

Lu Xiang, a specialist on U.S. affairs at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said that Beijing had been preparing for a "worse than the worst" confrontation with the United States, and added that any further escalation would be fatal to an already highly volatile USA stock market.

Authorities are looking for the plane's wreckage and "black boxes", which could hold valuable clues as to why the flight crashed . Investigators say that is also indicated by the search and rescue effort finding many body parts rather than intact victims.

Trump said the two countries have a chance to make a fair deal.

"Dollar moderation, the stabilising trade relationship between United States and China and more stimulus from Beijing will be the key ingredients to revive market confidence in Asia".

Both the USA and China have sought to portray the personal relations between the two leaders as a source of stability in the relationship, and they have refrained from direct criticism of each other.
