China's Economy Slows in Nearly Three Decades

China says Trump 'misleading' people linking trade deal, slowing economy China GDP growth slows to 6.2 percent in second quarter

In the second quarter, economic growth in China cooled to 6.2 percent, close to a three-decade low.

US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Mnuchin are due to talk over the phone with their Chinese counterparts this week. He noted that the United States actually lost more in the dispute. China has countered that any deal needs to be fair and equitable, leaving the two sides apparently still far from an agreement to end the back-and-forth that has roiled global supply chains and upended financial markets.

"To the extent that we make significant progress, I think there's a good chance we'll go there later", he told reporters at a rare White House news briefing ahead of his trip to meet with finance ministers from the Group of Seven (G7) nations. "There has been conversation at the staff level", Mnuchin said.

"Zhong Shan's more visible involvement in the negotiations is one of many signs that China has lost interest in a major deal that addresses the concerns of the United States and other countries about Chinese industrial policy and the lack of market reciprocity", he said.

"It will be at the end of the month", Su Ge said in an interview in NY.

China on Tuesday rebuffed a suggestion from United States President Donald Trump that Beijing wants a trade deal with the US as a result of its economy is slowing, saying this was "totally misleading" and that both nations needed an agreement. "We're working under the direction of President Trump and President Xi from the meeting in Osaka and we'll see where we get".

Our President said he would hold off on a threat to impose tariffs on an additional $325-B in Chinese imports, and that President Xi had agreed to buy large amounts of USA farm goods in exchange.

With this year marking the 70th anniversary of the People's Republic of China's founding, politics necessitates healthy growth, said Raymond Yeung of ANZ bank.

At that time, Trump said that the United States would allow some United States firms to sell products to Huawei, the Shenzhen-based telecommunications giant that Beijing sees as a strategic priority and Washington considers a national-security threat. "Let's see whether or not they do".

Meanwhile, Trump last week complained that China wasn't living up to its promise of increased purchases of American agricultural goods.

"We have not agreed to anything", Bi Jiyao, vice president at the Chinese Academy of Macroeconomic Research, said in an interview with Reuters.

Still, it's not clear if Beijing will agree to resume talks based on an earlier draft of the agreement that China's leadership has since rejected.

After meeting with Xi at the G20, Trump announced American firms could sell products to Huawei and earlier this month, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said licenses would be issued where there is no threat to national security.

Meanwhile, the Chinese embassy in Washington, and Ambassador Cui Tiankai, have launched their own separate Twitter accounts, keen to amp up visibility in the US capital for Beijing's views on the trade talks, Taiwan and other issues. "China still hopes to resolve U.S".
