Mnuchin: US, China committed to reaching trade deal by deadline

The report also said U.S. and Chinese firms won't benefit greatly from the protectionist policies.

At the White House, talking to DailyMail.com and other reporters, Mnuchin suggested that a conversation between Trump and Xi, in person, would be dependent on the headway negotiators make during next weeks staff-level trip to Beijing.

The trade war between the U.S. and China is expected to boost the Indian economy with a rise of 3.5 per cent in exports while the European Union will be the biggest victor, taking home $70 billion in additional trade, according to a United Nations study.

At the State of the Union address on February 5, President Trump emphasized the USA would accept nothing less than an equitable trade relationship with China following "decades of calamitous trade policies".

Dow Jones had reported that the talks next week would be led by Mr Mnuchin and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. "But it must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices, reduce our chronic trade deficit, and protect American jobs", he also said.

In a report, the U.N. Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) examined the repercussions of the tariff tit-for-tat already under way between the two trade giants, as well as the expected impact of a significant tariff hike scheduled to take effect on March 1. "India gets 150 per cent, we get nothing", he had said.

Trump hiked tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese goods over complaints that it steals or pressures USA companies to hand over technology in return for market access.

Both sides in the US-China trade negotiations are making a "big commitment" to reach an agreement by the March 1 deadline, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Wednesday.

Specifically, the legislation would give the President more authority to increase tariffs if other countries' tariff and non-tariff barriers are too restrictive.

"I don't think it would be productive to speculate on the outcome because we have a lot of work left to do".

Lighthizer held a closed-door briefing with USA senators on Wednesday on the upcoming China talks and the proposed new trade agreement between United States, Mexico and Canada. Another person close to the talks said Trump appeared determined to turn a pile of crumbs offered by China into what at best might turn out to be a slice of bread. "I can tell you one thing about this president".

"The Pain and the Gain", said that "bilateral tariffs alter global competitiveness to the advantage of firms operating in countries not directly affected by them".

German automakers Daimler (DDAIF) and BMW (BAMXF), which export high-end vehicles to China from their USA plants, said past year that Chinese tariffs on American-made cars were hurting their profits. Since then, Beijing has bought 2.6 million tonnes of the product.

Trump has made resetting the United States relationship with China a centerpiece of his presidency, pulling out of a planned multilateral trade deal drawn up by the Obama administration and launching a trade war a year ago that has contributed to an economic slowdown in China - and jitters in the US.
