....but something is better than nothing

A Doug Barry from the US China business council is saying:

  • A US/CHina trade deal is going to be smaller than some people had hoped. But a deal of any kind is more than a lot of skeptics have felt.

Craig Allen also of the US China Business council said yesterday:

We are losing share rapidly. If the light agreement is perceived to be 1st of a number of agreements or down payment on a resolution of issues that would be positive

Needless to say, wheels are turning, but "a deal" would come down to how hard a line will each side adhere to and to the mood of the POTUS.
