2019年2月16日 / weimiaow / Comments Off on Which is why US President Donald Trump’s latest remarks
that the negotiations have been progressing “very well” and he might reportedly even let the March 1 deadline “slide for a little while” — have been taken as portents that progress is being made and a positive result may well be on the way.
Especially as White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has raised the possibility of Trump meeting with Pres
ident Xi Jinping at the US president’s personal retreat at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, sometime in March — The White Ho
use has previously said the two leaders would have to meet to strike the final bargain.
The market never lies, as the saying goes. Let’s hope that’s true, because the stock market has already
cast a vote of confidence in China and the US being able to reach a deal. The bench mark S
hanghai Composite Index has rebounded more than 10 percent, and the Dow Jones industrial average, more than 15
percent, from their lows in December when Sino-US trade tensions were running high.
It is apt that melting snow symbolizes a new beginning, as positive progress in the talks would m
ean a convergence of expectations for bilateral relations and help ensure the Sino-US relationship has a s
olid foundation of mutual trust and good momentum for positive interaction at the start of its fifth decade.
