AUTO INDUSTRY/CHINA/ECONOMY/GERMANY/TRADE DEALS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “For three decades, China’s burgeoning demand for German cars, machines and engineering tools has been a steady engine of growth for Europe’s largest economy, gratefully championed by successive governments in Berlin. But the engine is starting to splutter. China’s economy is slowing, Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ policies are hurting global trade and China’s factories are becoming rivals to the German giants that once supplied them. The slowdown is not helping at a challenging time for Germany. Its economy contracted 0.1% in the second quarter and some analysts expect third-quarter gross domestic product (GDP) data due on Nov. 14 to show a similar decline – which would leave the economy in recession for the first time since 2013. While German trade with China is only a small part of the country’s 3.4 trillion euro (3.8 trillion) economy, it has been one of the few components of GDP that Berlin could count on to grow year after year.”

BRITAIN/EU/TARIFFS/TRADE DEALS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Britain spoke with President Trump by phone on Tuesday [11-5-19], and to judge by the dueling summaries of the call provided by the White House and 10 Downing Street, Mr. Johnson and Mr. Trump were involved in two completely different conversations. The White House said the two leaders pledged to negotiate ‘a robust bilateral free trade agreement once the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.’ Downing Street said nothing about a deal, noting instead that Mr. Johnson urged Mr. Trump to lift American tariffs on Scotch whisky. Such divergent accounts of a leader-to-leader call are not unheard-of, but the timing of this one, on the eve of Britain’s general election campaign, was telling. It shows just how much of a liability Mr. Trump has become for Mr. Johnson. Once, the prime minister talked up the benefits of having a close friend in the White House; now he is distancing himself from a figure who is radioactive to many Britons.”

CHINA/TARIFFS/TRADE DEALS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump said Monday [10-28-19] that negotiations for the so-called phase one of the United States’ trade deal with China were ‘ahead of schedule’…The comments come ahead of Trump’s meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Chile on Nov. 16-17…On Friday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer spoke with China’s Vice Premier Liu He about the deal and signaled progress on negotiations over the weekend. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative released a statement following the call, noting that both parties ‘made headway on specific issues.’ It was announced earlier this month that Beijing would buy $40 billion to $50 billion of U.S. agricultural products, in exchange for a stop on the United States’ scheduled Oct. 15 tariff increase. Officials, however, have left open the potential for a tariff increase Dec. 15.”

CHINA/TRADE DEALS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday [10-18-19] said he thinks a trade deal between the United States and China will be signed by the time the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings take place in Chile on Nov. 16 and 17. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will provide Beijing’s perspective on the progress of the talks in a speech on Saturday [10-19-19], according to a tweet from editor-in-chief of the Global Times, a tabloid published by the People’s Daily of China’s ruling Communist Party…The White House has announced that China agreed to buy up to $50 billion of U.S. farm products annually, as part of the first phase of a trade deal, although China seems slow to follow through. The so-called phase 1 deal was unveiled at the White House last week during a visit by vice premier He as part of a bid to end a tit-for-tat trade war between Beijing and Washington that has roiled markets and hammered global growth. U.S. officials said a second phase of negotiations could address thornier issues like forced technology transfer and non-financial services issues.”

CHINA/TARIFFS/TRADE DEALS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The United States and China made good progress in high-level trade talks on Thursday [10-10-19], President Donald Trump told reporters, despite expectations that the two sides remain far away from a comprehensive deal…The Chinese team led by Vice Premier Liu He is in Washington for the first since Trump escalated his trade war against China in August. Frustrated by the slow pace of the negotiations, he announced plans to ramp up tariffs to put more pressure on Beijing. This week, the two sides have sent signals they could reach agreement on some measures, even if a wider deal remains distant…The hopeful developments came after futures markets were whipsawed overnight amid reports that the Chinese delegation would cut its trip short. But stocks moved higher on Thursday after Trump said he would meet with Liu on Friday after talks wrap up with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.”
