US markets rallied and closed in positive territory Monday on news that Chinese President Xi Ji
上海419论坛nping and his US counterpart Donald Trump will resume negotiations to resolve the ongoing trade dispute.
Trump said talks are “back on track” and held off on his threat to impose tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese goods. Trump 上海419论坛
said China will buy “a tremendous amount” of US food and agriculture exports while bilateral negotiations are ongoing.
The S&P 500 reached 2,977.86 in midday trading, all all-time high, bef

“The devil is always in the details,” Usha Haley, professor of manageme
nt at Wichita State University, told China Daily. “I don’t know if Trump is the great m

Trump eased export sanctions on Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, boosting semiconductor stocks, including Micron Tech
nology, Skyworks Solutions, Qualcomm and Broadcom — and sparking the possibility of a revolt among some Republicans.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, a strong Trump supporter, told NBC’s Face the Nation on Sund 上海419论坛品茶微信
ay that he’s reviewing Trump’s action and noted, “It’s clearly a concession. There’ll be a lot of pu
shback if this is a major concession. If it’s a minor concession, I think it’s part of the overall deal.”
Neither side sai 上海419论坛品茶微信d when negotiations would resume or established a schedule for completing a deal.
Goldman Sachs called Trump’s decision to ease export sanctions on Huawei a “potential unexpected market friendly outcome”。
Asked at the G20 meeting in Japan if he had removed Huawei from the Entity List that controls the export of technology th
at could compromise US national security, Trump said, “No, not at all” and “We are talking about that” before telling re
porters, “I don’t want to talk about it now, we are looking at it very carefully. Huawei is very much in play.”

The G20 nations must lead by example on this imperative, Stern said, and especially the world’s two biggest economies, the US and China.
“China is demonstrating leadership through its significant investments in zero-carbon energy, particularly rene
wable power,” he said. “China’s support for solar power has directly contributed to the astonishingly rapid fall in
he production costs of panel units, making it now the cheapest source of electricity in many parts of the world.”
Stern also noted that China can provide even greater leadership through the Belt and Road Initiative if it e
ncourages the application of robust sustainability tests to investments in new infrastructure in partner countries.
