It’s reported that US and China might not be able to sign the phase one trade deal until December. Terms of the deal, regarding the size of China’s agricultural purchase and remove of some imposed tariffs, were still being negotiated. Data and locations are also undecided yet after Chile canceled the APEC summit this month.
Two locations inside the US, Iowa and Alaska, appeared to be ruled out. London is a possibility where presidents of the two country could meet after NATO summit on December 304. Sweden and Switzerland are also among the possibilities in Europe. Asia appears less likely as the destination There are calls for the Trump-Xi meeting to take place in Hong Kong, but no one from either side showed any “interest” to touch the city.
White House spokesman Judd Deere said earlier that “negotiations are continuing and progress is being made on the text of the phase one agreement. We will let you know when we have an announcement on a signing location.”
