Beijing urges Washington cooperation on tariffs

BEIJING: China hopes the United States will remove additional tariffs on Chinese products and containment measures soon to create favorable conditions for the two sides to expand trade cooperation, said Gao Feng, spokesman of China’s Ministry of Commerce, at an online media briefing on Thursday.

He made the remarks after being asked for comments on the implementation of the phase one trade agreement between the two countries.

“The phase one agreement between China and the US is beneficial to both countries and the world,” he said.

“Since the agreement came into effect, China has worked hard to offset multiple challenging factors such as the shock from the global COVID-19 pandemic, world economic recession and clogged supply chains to promote joint implementation of the agreement by both sides,” he added. -The Daily Mail-China Daily News Exchange Item
