U.S. and China Wrap Up Trade Talks

After 3 days, negotiations in Beijing come to an end

On Wednesday, U.S. and Chinese negotiators wrapped up their 3-day long trade talks. According to American negotiators, focus was placed on discussing Chinese purchases of a "substantial amount" of agricultural, energy, manufactured goods, and other products and services from the U.S. They also appeared to make progress regarding China's purchase of American exports and giving U.S. companies greater access to its market.

This meeting in Beijing was the first formal negotiations held between the two countries since the truce agreed to by U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping in December. In a statement, China said that the trade talks "improved mutual understanding and laid the foundation for resolving issues of mutual concern." President Trump also seemed very optimistic about the meetings stating that "talks with China are going very well!"

Stocks this week have also rebounded, signaling that there may soon be an agreement reached between the two nations.

  • For Chinese leader Xi Jinping and his team as they meet with the U.S. negotiating team
  • That God would grant compromise and continue to remove hostility between the U.S. and China
