Trump welcomes China easing tariffs as ‘big move’

Agence France-Press September 12, 2019

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Wednesday welcomed China’s decision to exempt some US exports from tariff increases.

“It was a big move,” Trump told reporters of the decision.

Top US and Chinese negotiators are due to resume talks in Washington next month after a summer of sharp deteriorations in US-China trade ties.

Beijing spared some US products from tariffs in a move seen as an olive branch ahead of the talks, but high-profile goods like soybeans and pork continue to face higher duties.
