European Union insists farming ‘not part’ of USA trade deal, contradicts Trump

Although, I think this last one is just a bluff, so China takes it easy on its part when Trump goes ahead with the previous plan and imposes tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese products. Tariffs imposed on U.S. agricultural products by China and others reduce farmers’ incomes.

Heading towards zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods, Juncker said they agreed to strengthen energy cooperation. And the USA relationship with Europe has deteriorated amid trade tensions and disputes over defense spending.

China’s currency has been weakening in recent months as the Trump administration’s tariffs of Chinese imports loomed.

Trump has announced a series of punitive tariffs on Chinese imports in a bid to halt a Chinese surge in high-technology industries that threatens to displace USA dominance.

Strategists at DBS Group Research have recalibrated their forecast for the yuan to end 2018 to 6.90 per dollar, with the dollar likely to strengthen on the U.S. Federal Reserve’s monetary tightening and more trade tensions in the second half of the year.

“I’m a good American, I believe that we all have to tow the line”, said another farmer.

President Donald Trump’s plan for “vast amounts” of USA liquefied natural gas (LNG) to be sold to the European Union after trade talks with its top representative faces a reality test. “But they’d rather have long-term contracts than short-term payments”. The food purchased from farmers would include some types of fruits, nuts, rice, legumes, dairy products, beef and pork, officials said.

The revelations of Chinese cyber espionage emerged amid the escalating trade war between Washington and Beijing – friction that has caused stock prices to drop in, whose currency, the renminbi, traded at it lowest point in a year against the USA dollar Thursday.

“If you keep in mind that a lot of these farmers are supporters of President Trump, they have really felt the pressure”.

However, it is becoming more and more apparent that is not congruent with being all-in for Mississippi.

The vast majority or 75.5% of the farmers had agriculture sales of less than $50,000. “They have kicked out literally billions of dollars in the last two years”. While the International Monetary Fund praised China’s progress on reducing financial sector risks and in further opening its economy, it said credit growth was still unsustainably high as some aspects of the country’s rebalancing had slowed. Moreover, the trend is expected to continue for the upcoming years.

China has threatened to retaliate dollar for dollar, and its refusal to sign off on regulatory approval caused a $44 billion deal from Qualcomm Inc to buy NXP Semiconductors to fall apart, a move that showed USA companies were being targeted unfairly, Mnuchin said.
