White House Economist Talks Trade with Germany

Agreement on enhancing market access

Larry Kudlow, President Trump’s top economist, held high-level talks with officials from Germany on Wednesday.

“They had a good conversation and exchange today regarding a number of topics of mutual interest and shared economic and trade challenges,” the White House deputy press secretary said. “Both agreed to enhance economic growth and market access.” Future meetings will take place, she said.

In addition to trade, the talks involved other economic issues. Two months ago President Trump struck a preliminary agreement with the European Union, averting the potential for a transatlantic trade war. An agreement was made at that time that the two major economies would immediately begin negotiations, including working toward “zero tariffs” on industrial goods, and cooperation on energy issues.
