The US and China "took a break" a trade war

Trump Winning battles in the wars against fentanyl and trade with China

The euro rose to $1.1385 from $1.1353. The White House made it clear that the 10 percent tariffs would still leap up to 25 percent if China doesn't meet USA demands in 90 days.

It remains uncertain how the two sides will resolve underlying United States concerns over trade barriers, subsidies and alleged technology theft. One economist said that even with USMCA, "trade is going to be less free in North America than it was when President Trump took office".

The deal means the U.S.is unlikely to match China's 40-percent duties on light vehicles built in the US, a move the American government has considered in recent weeks.

Asked why the auto tariffs weren't mentioned in statements the US and China issued after the dinner, Kudlow inexplicably insisted that they were.

At the same time, USA farmers have been hurt by reduced Chinese imports of soybeans and other products.

What was agreed at the G20? . Had a deal not been struck, tariffs on US$200bn worth of Chinese goods would have risen from 10% to 25% at the start of 2019. Jinping has also pledged to immediately begin negotiations on structural changes with respect to forced technology transfer and intellectual property protection.

The United States said Saturday that it agreed in a long-awaited summit with China to suspend new tariffs for 90 days as the two powers seek to end a trade war.

In a tweet, Trump said: "China has agreed to reduce and remove tariffs on cars coming into China from the US".

According to the agreement, the United States and China will not increase or introduce new tariffs for 90 days. The agreement keeps those tariffs at 10 percent for at least the next 90 days while the countries negotiate further.

On the non-trade issues, Beijing was more open, announcing that China will tighten supervision of Fentanyl and review rules on the drug.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on CNBC the U.S. and Chinese had "very specific discussions" in Buenos Aires Saturday evening on steps to defuse their conflict, which involves hundreds of billions in bilateral trade and had roiled world markets for months.

What pushed the two sides to the table?

Regarding the impact on agriculture, Trump claimed Chinese purchases would immediately make farmers "a very BIG and FAST beneficiary", although there is no agreement yet on agricultural issues.

However, he has faced fierce criticism from U.S. business groups, as the tariffs lead to reduced exports of crops such as soybeans, while raising costs for businesses that rely on Chinese imports. Einar Tangen, a political analyst and investment banker based in Beijing says that the truce was "an excellent outcome", given the threats of escalation in months preceding the meeting.

Will this resolve the dispute?

.

Further, the differences between the statements released by the USA and China suggest that the two sides hold substantial gaps about expectations for negotiations.

To which Xi responded, "Only with cooperation between us can we serve the interest of world peace and prosperity".

"We all realize that we are indirectly influenced by the fact that Sino-American economic relations are not running as smoothly as a world order needs", she said.
