Trade Agreement Signed Today

Take advantage of U.S. farmers, ranchers and agricultural businesses by modernizing and strengthening food and agricultural trade in North America. The full text of the agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada is available here. BEIJING/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – China will increase purchases of U.S. goods and services by $200 billion over two years in exchange for the removal of tariffs as part of an early trade deal signed by the world`s two largest economies, defusing an 18-month series that has affected global growth. “In the seven long years since the start of the RCEP negotiations, tens of thousands of New Zealanders have demonstrated against these mega-trade agreements,” said Miller. “The global tide has since shifted to commercial and investment operations, such as the RCEP, that put profit ahead of humans and planets.” The two countries also pledged to begin negotiations next year with an ambitious new free trade agreement that will far exceed the existing agreement. The UK-Mexico Trade Continuation Agreement will particularly benefit the automotive, pharmaceutical, textile, agriculture, food and beverage and other manufacturing sectors, where the UK has the highest trade sector with Mexico. “This agreement is good news for businesses on both sides.

It gives security to the thousands of British companies already exporting to Mexico – and provides a solid basis for negotiating a new, more ambitious deal next year. “I think it may be a useful pause in the downward spiral of U.S.-China relations,” Susan Shirk, a professor at the University of California, said of the trade deal. Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said he was pleased with the agreement and said: “I am very pleased that after eight years of difficult negotiations, we are ending the Negotiations on the Comprehensive Regional Economic Partnership (RCEP) today and formally signing them at the 37th ASEAN Summit.” But the agreement preserves most of Mr. Trump`s tariffs on $360 billion worth of Chinese goods and maintains the threat of additional penalties if Beijing does not comply with the terms of the agreement. Trump, who has an “America First” policy to rebalance global trade for the benefit of American businesses and workers, said China has pledged to take steps to address the problem of pirated or counterfeit products and said the agreement provides for strong protection of intellectual property rights.
