China agrees to buy more US ag products as trade negotiations heat up

The White House announced Saturday night that China has agreed to “start purchasing agricultural products from our farmers immediately” after a dinner meeting between President Donald Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping and high-level officials on both sides.

It’s unclear whether China agreed to lift its wide-ranging retaliatory tariffs on everything from soybeans to tree nuts that have been responsible for the massive reduction in U.S. ag exports, but the meeting - following a dinner of grilled sirloin, seasonal vegetable salad and caramel rolled pancakes on the sidelines of a G20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina - appears to have reduced trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies.

Trump agreed during the talks to hold off on a planned increase in the rate on tariffs he imposed on China. In return, the White House said, China agreed to “immediately begin negotiations on structural changes with respect to forced technology transfer, intellectual property protection, non-tariff barriers, cyber intrusions and cyber theft, services and agriculture.”

That promise by Xi was key. National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow stressed to reporters Tuesday there would be no chance of a deal with China if the country refused to stop trying to appropriate U.S. intellectual property.

Still sounds pretty vague. Haven't see an actual text of the agreement.
