- The U.S.-China trade talks yielded little firm progress, but tones were
generally warm, although U.S. TR Lighthizer noted that there is still much to
do. Trump tweeted that there will be no firm deal until he meets with Chinese
counterpart Xi, which was proposed by Chinese representatives. Trump also wants
"a big trade deal" or it will be postponed. Xi stressed that he hopes that both
sides can meet each other half way. There is talk of up to 2 meetings between
the superpowers in the pipeline ahead of the Mar 1 tariff deadline. IP matters &
ind. subsidies remain key stumbling blocks, as well as enforcement of any deal.
