China wants more talks before signing trade deal

Posted on October 14, 2019

President Trump announced that the first phase of a deal with China had been agreed, though officials on both sides said much more work needed to be done. The partial deal — which covers agriculture, currency and some aspects of intellectual property protections — represents the first step forward to end the trade war in 15 months.

China wants Trump to also scrap a planned tariff hike in December in addition to the hike scheduled for this week, the report added.
