The U.S. and China have had a difficult time finding common ground in trade, but the two countries are making progress toward a future trade deal.
The two sides signed a bilateral free-trade agreement in 2015 that is aimed at boosting American exports and keeping jobs in the United States, as well as reducing tariffs and other barriers to trade.
That deal was a key part of President Donald Trump’s election campaign, and it helped make Trump the first president since Reagan to win the presidency without a major trade deal, but it has yet to become law.
Trump has sought to renegotiate the pact, and he has made trade a central part of his foreign policy.
He has said he will renegotiate trade deals to get the best deal possible for the U.N. and for American workers, but has been unable to secure a major agreement.
“It’s time to start looking at the future and renegotiating a lot of things.
But I can tell you it’s time.
It’s time for us to start thinking about the future,” Trump said last month.
In February, the White House said the administration is “committed to getting this thing done” and that the two sides are in the “early stages of discussions.”
But the two leaders have been locked in a tug-of-war for years over the agreement.
Trump wants to slap tariffs on Chinese imports and China wants to keep them.
On Wednesday, Trump told reporters that China should pay for its “very bad trade deals,” including a trade dispute with South Korea.
“The fact that China is getting away with murder in their trade is a disgrace, and we have to deal with it,” Trump told a press conference.
The Trump administration is currently in talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping and is hoping to finalize a deal before Trump leaves office on Jan. 20.
The president has said China’s actions in the South China Sea should not be considered part of their trade negotiations, but a senior U.K. official told CNNMoney on Thursday that “there is an element” of China’s involvement in the territorial dispute.
“That would be a very big part of the discussion,” the official said.
China is a top U.C.S.’s trade partner with about $3.7 trillion in goods and services each year.
In a separate statement, U.H.I.S., the global technology, research and innovation agency, said China has “firmly asserted its sovereignty over some of the South and East China Seas in violation of the U,N.
Convention on the Law of the Sea and the relevant U.T.O. agreements.”
It added that it was “concerned that China continues to assert sovereignty in these waters, which is contrary to the international law, U,S.
obligations and the UH.
I.S.-China trade relationship.”
It also said that “China’s continued aggressive behavior and disregard for U.U.
S obligations is a threat to regional security, economic stability and international law.”
China’s actions on the South Chinese Sea, and its actions in its exclusive economic zone, has also put U.L.O.’s U.P.A.A., an association of U.R.A.’s technology, manufacturing and scientific industries, at odds with the U-H.i.
S-China Free Trade Agreement.
It is unclear what the future holds for the bilateral free trade agreement.
A senior UH-I.A.-CISI official said in February that U.
A-I and the trade agency were working on “alternative proposals” for a future agreement.
