President Trump: The United States can forge a trade deal with China

China's exports to the United States (US) plunged in January and February as President Donald Trump's punitive tariffs chilled demand, while sales to the rest of the world also weakened.

However, one Beijing-based source familiar with the trade talks said there had been no formal discussions between the two countries on Xi going to Florida, and downplayed the chances of it happening this month.

"What Chinese minister wants to say, "Yes, Xi Jinping".

Analysts polled by Reuters had expected February shipments from the world's largest exporter to have fallen 4.8 per cent from a year earlier, after a surprise jump of 9.1 per cent in January.

Chinese officials are feeling optimistic about the state of trade negotiations with the USA, after the White House chose to hold off on raising tariffs.

China's trade surplus with the US narrowed to $14.7 billion for the month, from $27.3 billion in January. "We're not there yet. But we're closer than we've been for a very long time", he told the Journal.

Trump, however, denied on Friday that talks with China had hit a rough patch.

'It has been a long and hard process, ' Branstad said, adding: 'I'm more hopeful now than I've been throughout the past year that we can see an effective agreement reached'. Instead, he raised the stakes of a potential trade deal, suggesting an agreement would boost equity markets.

Lea Michele ties the knot with boyfriend of two years Zandy Reich
After two years together, the couple were married at an intimate ceremony in Northern California on March 9, according to People . Michele's gown complemented the blushing bride which she previously described as a dress that will "stand the test of time".

In a move that could help the negotiations, China's parliament will next week pass a new law regulating foreign investment and barring the forced transfer of technology by foreign firms to Chinese joint venture partners.

He added that Beijing's top economic official Liu He and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer held talks over a packed lunch of burgers and eggplant stir-fried with chicken - a common Chinese dish - in Washington last month.

"I am confident but. if this isn't a great deal, I won't make a deal", Trump told reporters as he departed the White House to visit tornado-damaged Alabama. In Hanoi, that left him empty-handed halfway across the globe, though he and his aides insist there was still progress made even without a final joint statement.

Trump administration officials have expressed some hope that a summit could happen by the end of this month or in early April.

China put its surplus at a lower but still record US$323.3 billion.

"It is not good for Xi to go to America to sign such an agreement".

Trump imposed tariff hikes of up to 25 per cent on Dollars 250 billion of Chinese goods.
