USA and China wrap up trade talks in Beijing. What happens next?

U.S. President Donald Trump argued that China has not treated the U.S. fairly in terms of trade. But aside from some soybean purchases, there has been little sign of big-ticket acquisitions. Trump said late Tuesday on Twitter.

Those purchases would help meet another key demand from Trump: that China take actions to reduce the massive USA trade deficit with its biggest economic rival. WTI is among the most popular USA light crude grades with Asian buyers.

But a more hard question may be whether China agrees to monitoring of such a commitment, a condition that US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer has said is a prerequisite to any deal.

The U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 3.4 per cent in the third quarter and unemployment is at a five-decade low. -Chinese relations for years.

"It certainly has hurt the Chinese economy", Ross told CNBC, noting that China exports many more goods to the United States than the other way around.

President Trump has said if no deal is reached before the truce expires on March 2, he will increase duties on $200bn worth of Chinese goods from 10% to 25%.

Beijing has said it will not give up ground on issues that it perceives as core.

The paper said in an editorial that Beijing's stance remained firm that the dispute harms both countries and disrupts the worldwide trade order and supply chains.

Members of the USA delegation told reporters the talks progressed well.

One of the biggest challenges to any deal would be to ensure that China enforces whatever is agreed to stop technology transfers, intellectual property theft and hacking of United States computer networks.

"Officials discussed the need for any agreement to provide for complete implementation subject to ongoing verification and effective enforcement", the USTR said. "Their economy's not doing well", Trump told reporters at the White House before boarding the Marine One presidential helicopter. She added, "we expect that something will come of this. I don't want to comment on what that will look like".

Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Monday that Chinese military aircraft and naval vessels were dispatched to identify the US vessel and warn it to leave the area near disputed islands in the South China Sea.

U.S. officials visited Beijing from Monday to Wednesday for the first sit-down talks since President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping agreed on Dec 1 to a three-month truce in the escalating trade spat. U.S. bond yields also climbed, with the benchmark 10-year Treasuries yield rising to 2.7404 percent, compared with its one-year low of 2.543 per cent hit just before Friday's strong payrolls data.

Among their many requests, US negotiators are asking the Chinese to increase purchases of American farm and energy commodities; allow greater access into China's markets; improve and enforce property theft protections; and an end of China's policy of forcing foreign companies to hand over technology secrets. While Beijing regards these plans as essential to China's continued economic growth, Washington is hostile to the threat that it poses not only to the dominant position of USA corporations, but also to United States military superiority.
