Samson:  America and China vow to enhance trade cooperation

1st January, 2019

The Chinese and US presidents exchanged letters pledging to strengthen cooperation despite a severe trade dispute between them, on the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries, according to official Chinese media.

Tension between Beijing and Washington escalated in 2018 on the back of trade disputes, but US President Donald Trump froze new customs duties and announced Saturday “great progress” following a call to his counterpart Xi Jinping.  In the exchange of letters Tuesday, Chinese President Hu Jintao stressed the importance of working with the United States “to advance Sino-US relations and enhance coordination, cooperation and stability,” according to the official Xinhua news agency.

Trump praised the last four decades of China-US diplomacy and welcomed his “strong friendship” with the Chinese president, Xinhua said. Washington and China exchanged customs duties on goods worth more than $ 300 billion last year, triggering a trade dispute that began to affect profits and led to a fall in capital markets.

Trump launched the trade war following complaints about China’s “unfair” practice, which were also expressed by the EU, Japan and others.  But since the two presidents agreed to a truce on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, little signs of progress have emerged, amid the absence of new threats from Trump.   LINK

Don961:   At the age of twenty .. Controversy about the importance of the euro and its future

– 49 Minutes Ago

Today – the first of January – the twentieth anniversary of the start of the euro currency trading unified euro.

This year’s event goes without celebrating the symbol of the continent. Financial and monetary problems continue to plague many European countries, while the debate over the importance and future of the currency continues.

Although European officials have stressed that the single currency has prevented prices from rising, the euro’s image is still inherent to inflation and the contraction of the purchasing power of many Europeans.

Today, the single currency does not seem so immune as to make it a mature and durable global currency, especially as international alliances are re-formed economically and politically.
