United States envoys are to visit Beijing on Monday for talks on resolving a tariff dispute that threatens to hobble global economic growth, Beijing said yesterday.
The two days of meetings are aimed at carrying out the December 1 truce by Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping that postponed additional tariff hikes, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce announced Friday. A report in March by the U.S. Trade Representative accused China of hacking into U.S. companies' computer networks to steal secrets and coercing American companies to hand over technology as the price of admission to the Chinese market. Since Apple CEO Tim Cook is attributing this to President Donald Trump's trade war with China, Hassett argued that this fits with what he's been saying about how the USA economy is supposedly growing while intercontinental markets are slowing down.
Other administration officials at the talks will include Mr Gregg Doud, the US Trade Representative's chief agricultural negotiator, and Mr David Malpass, the Treasury Department's Undersecretary for International Affairs, said the sources.
"The rest of the world is slowing, especially Europe and China, but the US has enough momentum", said Mohamed El-Erian, the chief economic adviser of asset manager and insurer Allianz. "Can they compromise? We'll see". "I think that there are a heck of a lot of USA companies that have a lot of sales in China that are basically going to be watching their earnings be downgraded next year until we get a deal with China".
"Clearly both sides are feeling economic stress, but both have high ambitions". But economists say that is too little time to resolve the sprawling disputes that bedevil U.S.

On January 1, China and the U.S. congratulated each other on the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries. They criticize his tactics but echo US complaints about Chinese industrial policy and market barriers. The two sides will discuss how to implement consensus reached by leaders of both countries in Argentina, it said.
The dispute has rattled companies and financial markets that worry it will drag on global economic growth, already showing signs of declining.
"China is the biggest beneficiary of Apple, more than us, because they build their product mostly in China", Trump said.
