AP, WASHINGTONThe US and China have agreed to take measures to “substantially reduce” the US’ massive trade deficit with China, but US President Donald Trump’s administration failed to get the Chinese to commit to a specific numerical goal. However, the statement provided no dollar amounts on how much China might boost its purchases of US products. Trade analysts said it was highly unlikely that China would ever agree to a numerical target for cutting the trade gap between the two nations, but they said the talks likely were more successful in de-escalating recent trade tensions. Europe could end up rueing a potential new deal between China and the US, French Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire said yesterday. “The United States and China risk entering an agreement at the expense of Europe if Europe is not capable of showing a firm hand,” Le Maire told CNEWS television.
