China's Vice-Premier Liu He says the world pins high hopes on China-US trade talks to make progress
China's Global Times with the very brief report:
Vice-Premier Liu He
- says China-US trade negotiating teams will meet next week
- to discuss trade balance, market access, investors protection issues
- the whole world pin high hopes on China-US trade consultations to make progress
Nothing much there notable ... but think about the 'high hopes' bit, he is correct and … the scope for disappointment is also therefore high.
I suspect the positive soothing noises will persist for a while but that nothing of much substance, in at all, will end up being agreed to. Hope I'm wrong.
