It said that "linking China's strategic choice to the current China-US trade frictions" was a "baseless interpretation".

Trump has also damaged his free-trade credentials by pulling out of a major Pacific trade agreement and threatening to terminate existing deals such as NAFTA, which links the United States with Canada and Mexico.

The value of deals announced in 2017 fell by more than 90% from the year before, according to joint studies by the National Committee on US-China Relations and the Rhodium Group. "And they have really done a number on this country", Trump said during the meeting at the White House. "I think the time is gradually coming for China and the United States to negotiate". We didn't do it; they did.

US-China trade tensions may be a lingering reality that puts as much as $400 billion in investment at risk in the world's two biggest economies, a new report said.

If the trade war escalates and the US imposes further tariffs on other products, and the macroeconomic impact becomes more visible, China could have options to impose higher tariffs on all USA exports to China, restrict market access for USA firms in China, provide preferential treatment to US competitors, and restrict U.S.travel by Chinese nationals.

"I really do think it is too early to judge how this is going to affect the economy", Mr Kaplan said on Bloomberg Television from Beijing.

"President Xi also pledged China's commitment to globalisation as well as trade and investment liberalization".

China said on Wednesday it would allow foreign investors greater access to its stock markets and promised that other previously announced financial reforms would come into effect within months. "That's why we've seen tech and biotech performing very strongly today".

The one exception to rising indices has been the Russian stock market, which has taken a hammering following the introduction of USA sanctions targeting oligarchs close to President Vladimir Putin. "We will make great progress together!" tweeted Trump. "If you look at the European Union, they have tremendous barriers - trade barriers".

"We will not bully our neighbours", the president said. Well, that didn't exactly happen. Noting that the North Korea and South Korea situation complicated it, Trump said the deal that the U.S. was going to have with South Korea was going to be "a very fair deal". "OPEC exports are likely to remain fairly stable even if U.S. sanctions are resumed". "The president has asked the Department of Agriculture to protect farmers, and will present a plan on the specifics of that shortly", said Sanders. United States companies have $256 billion invested in Chinese firms, while Chinese companies have invested about $140 billion in the USA, according to the report.

The ministry said the USA measures were not for maintaining national security, as Washington has said, but rather were in aid of trade protectionism.

Partnering with China on the Belt and Road Initiative is a strategic move on Singapore's part, since this would be instrumental to economic growth and will help the city-state maintain its status as a trade hub in Asia, as well as to continue to woo foreign companies to its shores.

The statement comes in the backdrop of U.S. President Trump's stand of punishing China for "stealing American intellectual property rights" as well as correcting the imbalance in bilateral trade of goods between the U.S. and China.
