Chinese premier meets with Tesla's Musk as trade talks end

US President Donald Trump boasted Tuesday that US-China trade negotiations were going "very well" as officials held talks in Beijing that will spill into a third day.

U.S. Undersecretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Ted McKinney, center, who is part of U.S. trade delegation leaves from a hotel for a second day of meetings with Chinese officials in Beijing, China, Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019.

Washington is pressing Beijing for changes including rolling back plans for government-led creation of Chinese global champions in robotics and other fields.

The Trump administration's calculus regarding how much to stress either increased purchases of United States goods, on the one hand, or structural reforms reflects a divide within the White House.

Investors welcomed signs of optimism from the talks. Stocks rose globally after the two economic powers appeared to inch closer to an agreement, with the S&P 500 Index rising for a fourth day to the highest in nearly a month.

Leaked photographs posted on the South China Morning Post's website showed U.S. officials applauding Liu's appearance, including the U.S. delegation leader, Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish.

Trump and Xi have given their officials until March 1 to reach an accord on "structural changes" to China's economy on issues such as the forced transfer of American technology, intellectual-property rights, and non-tariff barriers.

The Global Times commentary said China's growing economy means it can "carry out a more intense boycott" of trade with the United States if needed.

During the 1985-1986 season, Holieway took over as starting quarterback after Troy Aikman's leg was broken. The Tigers came right back, however, with a lightning-fast scoring drive of their own.

On Monday, Chinese importers made another large purchase of United States soybeans, their third in the past month. "Progress should include a mechanism for the removal of tariffs and measurable, commercially meaningful outcomes", the U.S.

A combination of lower shipping costs and lower domestic demand will boost US crude oil exports to Asia, Reuters reports, citing sources from the commodity trading and shipping industries. China responded by imposing penalties on $110 billion of American goods, slowing customs clearance for USA companies and suspending issuing licenses in finance and other businesses. -China discussions said positions were closer on areas including energy and agriculture but further apart on harder issues.

It appears trade talks between the USA and China are going well as reports suggest the two sides are getting closer on settling their differences.

Tu Xinquan, a Chinese trade expert at Beijing's University of International Business and Economics, told Reuters before talks began that the meetings would likely focus on technical issues and leave major disagreements to more senior officials.

The mid-level talks were the first face-to-face meeting between the two sides since their leaders met on 1 December.

The United States has long complained about access to the vast Chinese market and Beijing's demands USA companies reveal their technology advances. US government data shows the Asian nation scooped up more than 2.6 million metric tons of beans in December and at least another 1.3 million were sold this year, according to people familiar with the matter. But China has bought only around 5 million tonnes since purchases resumed in December, less than 20 percent of the beans it bought a year earlier.

"From the beginning we have believed that China U.S. trade friction is not a positive situation for either country or the world economy", Lu said.
