Thursday’s Factors and Events
Completion of a “phase one” U.S.-China trade deal could slide into next year, Reuters reported, as Beijing presses for more extensive tariff rollbacks and the Trump administration counters with heightened demands of its own.
Earlier, after the U.S. Senate late Tuesday approved a bill to support human rights in Hong Kong following months of often-violent unrest in the semi-autonomous Chinese city, China responded by threatening to take “strong countermeasures” if Congress proceeds with passage of the bill.
Both sides remain divided over core issues — including Beijing’s demand for removing tariffs and the U.S.’s insistence on China buying farm products — nearly six weeks after an “agreement in principle” was announced by the White House on Oct. 11.
