No short-term economic impact for Mexico under new trade agreement: HR Ratings

As part of the USMCA deal, Canada said it would agree to dismantle the "class 7" pricing program, which covered milk ingredients including skim milk, milk powder and protein concentrates. This week, a Chinese warship conducted a risky maneuver and sailed within 45 yards of a U.S. Navy warship in the contested South China Sea, where China has sought to establish maritime dominance in the crucial shipping corridor.

JPMorgan thinks the Trump administration is likely to proceed with tariffs on all Chinese goods sent to the U.S. by the end of next year, according to an analysis published this week.

The Trump administration is embroiled in a trade war with China and has slapped tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of Chinese goods, prompting retaliation from Beijing.

Even as Pence portrayed China as a pernicious threat, he said Trump had cultivated "a strong personal relationship" with China's president, Xi Jinping, and asserted that rapport could lead to a thaw in U.S.

He said that Chinese security agencies have masterminded "the wholesale theft of American technology".

China has no doubt it is the target of the clause, which requires an USMCA member country to provide notice and information to the other two partners if it plans free trade talks with a "non-market" economy.

"They do not want me or us to win because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade", he said September 26 during remarks at a United Nations Security Council meeting in NY.

If the federal government is serious about following through on a Canada-China trade deal, now's the time to follow through and prove that the clause is meaningless, said former Canadian ambassador to the U.S. Derek Burney on CTV's Question Period.

"Regrettably, we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election", Mr. Trump said. The new treaty also offers much more protection for US intellectual property rights and digital technology. It said these include specialized alloys and rare earth metals.




Trump, who did not name Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland by name, told reporters he didn't like Canada's negotiator, Canada's negotiation practices, or its stance on dairy tariffs and claimed he rejected a meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In his speech, Pence offered only two examples related to the upcoming elections - the targeted tariffs and the advertising supplement - which did not rise to the level of the Russian effort to meddle in the 2016 election.

Bloomberg Businessweek cited 17 unidentified intelligence and company sources as saying that Chinese spies had placed computer chips in equipment used by about 30 firms, as well as multiple USA government agencies, which would give Beijing secret access to internal networks. "China is just very different and very hard".

Google, Pence said, "should immediately end development of the "Dragonfly" app that will strengthen Communist Party censorship and compromise the privacy of Chinese customers".

- Senior Chinese officials have tried to influence business leaders to condemn US trade actions, "leveraging their desire to maintain their operations in China".

He will accuse China of threatening "to deny a business license for a major USA corporation if it refused to speak out against our administration's policies". "One argument is that it's a nothing burger because the six-month clause is there for the whole agreement regardless of circumstance, but it is a bit of a reach in terms of extraterritoriality that doesn't make me feel particularly good", Burney said.

"They told me they were anxious", Trudeau said of his meeting with milk producers. "We are grateful for the Administration's and the U.S. Trade Representative's stern and ardent support of the U.S. dairy industry", said Ryan.

Pence made clear that the United States still adhered to its four-decade policy of recognizing only Beijing but added to applause: "Let me also say that Taiwan's embrace of democracy shows a better path for all the Chinese people".
