Is China To lossen Trade For Trump?

Reuters is reporting that the Finanicail Times is saying that China is to offer trade concessions to the USA . Obviously this must be the result of the hard line Trump has been taking with China. Here is the Reuters article:

‘China will offer the Trump administration better market access for financial sector investments and U.S. beef exports to help avert a trade war, the Financial Times reported on Sunday, citing officials familiar with the matter.

China is prepared to raise the investment ceiling in the Bilateral Investment treaty and is also willing to end the ban on U.S. beef imports, the newspaper also reported.

“China was prepared to (raise the investment ceilings) in the BIT but those negotiations were put on hold (after Trump’s election victory),” the Financial Times also reported citing a Chinese official involved in the talks.

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Friday that President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping have agreed to a new 100-day plan for trade talks on Friday.

The U.S. trade department was not immediately available for comment while the China’s ministry of commerce could not be reached for comment.’
