'I think we'll make a deal with China'

China,Economy,Xi Jinping

Bloomberg later reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that Trump wants to reach a trade agreement with China at the G20 meeting and that after the call with Xi he had asked officials to begin drafting potential terms.

The U.S.is preparing to announce by early December tariffs on all remaining imports from China if talks between presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping at the Group of 20 meeting on November 30 to Dec. 1 fail to ease the trade war. "We are not on the cusp of a deal", Kudlow said. "They want to make a deal", Trump said Friday outside the White House.

"At best, the parties are negotiating about negotiating and we are still miles from a deal", Boltansky said.

It says some companies are having difficulty operating because they find themselves exposed to risks accumulated over the years.

"Both leaders attach great importance to China-U.S. ties and economic ties", Lu said. U.S. tariffs on half of what China exports to the United States have sapped confidence in Beijing's ability to maintain current growth levels.

US-China talks have made little progress since May, when Trump put a stop to a deal that would see China buy more energy and agricultural goods to narrow the trade deficit.

Trump had earlier said on Twitter that he held a "very good" conversation with the Chinese president "with a heavy emphasis on trade". It also fuelled speculation that Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He's trip to the United States, which had originally been scheduled for September but was cancelled due to the escalation of the trade dispute, might be back in the cards.

The Communist Party's Politburo, China's top policymaking body headed by President Xi Jinping, said on Wednesday it would stimulate market dynamic and facilitate the long-term healthy development of capital markets, as the economy is under growing downward pressure.

He adds that any deal reached must be "fair".

The Trump administration also has taken action to hit the Chinese semiconductor industry, indicting two companies accused of stealing trade secrets and banning U.S. software and equipment exports to one of them.

The US President underscored that he and Xi would try to resolve differences to end the brewing trade war between Washington and Beijing.

Trump imposed new tariffs on roughly half of Chinese imports this summer while Beijing fired back with tariffs on most United States products. In Beijing that was seen as an insult to Xi, who sent a personal emissary to Washington for the negotiations, and cemented a view that Trump's real goal was to thwart China's rise.

The U.S. leader has threatened to tax all imports from China unless it addresses "unfair" trade practices.

China's official Xinhua News Agency said that Xi accepted the call at Trump's invitation. An early-December announcement of a new product list could make the effective date - after a 60-day public comment period - coincide with China's Lunar New Year holiday in early February.
