US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer told Fox Business Network that the US-China trade deal to be signed on Wednesday is a”a really good deal for the United States”. But he’s no “Pollyanna” on how China would follow through the commitments. He just noted that “we’re tough, hard people, and we expect them to live up to the letter of the law.”

He added, “we will have people looking at whether or not they’re living up to their commitments on tech transfer, on IP, on financial services, opening on agriculture standards issues and the like.” “So, this is something that we’ll have to monitor.”

Lighthizer also said “we are about finished with the translation. It always takes time.” He was holding the English version of the deal and “we’re going to make it public on Wednesday before the signing.”
