China says US trade orders should respect international rules

Trump Signs Two New Executive Orders On Trade

China's Ministry of Commerce began formalizing the provincial-state ties in 2012, when Xi visited the USA and talked with governors including Iowa's Terry Branstad, an old friend from a 1980s cultural exchange, about boosting trade opportunities.

While the outreach is a continuation of regional ties promoted for several years by Mr Xi, it has taken on added urgency as Mr Trump's economic team weighs whether to follow through on campaign-trail promises of tariffs of as much as 45 per cent on Chinese goods.

"Nothing we're saying tonight is about China".

'The meeting next week with China will be a very hard one, ' Trump tweeted, in apparent reference to a Xi visit planned for next week in Mar-a-Lago. But foreign trade has also created savings by USA consumers for helping to reduce prices for clothing, cars and furniture, among other items.

State news agency Xinhua also struck a conciliatory tone.

Speaking earlier at a briefing on the Xi-Trump meeting, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang acknowledged the trade imbalance, but said it was mostly due to differences in their two economic structures and noted that China had a trade deficit in services.

Oil prices decline on rising U.S. crude inventories
E&Ps (exploration and production companies) are going to put on two", said Kyle Cooper, a consultant for ION Energy in Houston. The nation's crude output has climbed to 9.1 MMbpd, the most since February previous year , according to the EIA.

President Trump heavily criticized US foreign trade policy during his presidential campaign.

Seeking to downplay the rift, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang reiterated a desire for cooperation on trade. The surplus with the United States a year ago represented 68 per cent of Thailand's total trade surplus of $17.9 billion. Honts, whose company raises investment money under the EB-5 visa program, says Chinese immigrants have put $200 million into real estate, oil exploration and other ventures in the state. "You can't do that". Ultimately, it could mean more jobs or job security in American manufacturing, but higher prices on goods across the nation. Let's not make this a China story.

The incident unfolded on the White House's official live stream of the event but was cut from an edited video later posted on Mr Trump's personal Twitter account.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has vowed to toughen anti-dumping enforcement, including initiating cases from his office rather than waiting for companies to file a complaint, which has been the practice.

"It will form the basis for decision making by the administration", he said. Lu said Wednesday that China would stick to its climate commitments after Trump, who has called climate change a hoax, this week rescinded measures enacted by Obama to reduce coal and oil use.

In January, Trump withdrew the US from the massive Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement and has stepped up attacks on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), spurring concern that his next target could be the pact with Korea that he denounced as a job-killing deal during the campaign.
