Trump, Juncker announce deal, pulling back from trade war
    2018-07-27  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AT a joint press briefing after their meeting in Washington on Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told media that the two sides had agreed to work together toward “zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers, and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods.”

They also vowed to work to increase trade in services, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, medical products, as well as soybeans, and Brussels planned to import more liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States.

Meanwhile, the two sides agreed to launch a close dialogue on standards, in order to ease trade, reduce bureaucratic obstacles, and set up immediately a working group to “identify short-term measures to facilitate commercial exchanges and assess existing tariff measures and what we can do about that to the betterment of both,” Trump said.

While some U.S. experts saw the initiatives announced by Trump and Juncker as encouraging, they believed that the substantial differences between the two sides remained and doubted whether the deals will really be implemented.

Despite the stated initiatives, however, the two sides have so far failed to substantially patch up ties strained over U.S. tariffs on EU’s cars and steel and aluminum.

“The White House should immediately follow up its promises to eliminate tariffs on steel and aluminum from the EU and work to establish similar deals with other allies. The president should also suspend the national security investigation into automobile imports,” said Tori Whiting, a trade economist at Heritage Foundation. (Xinhua)
