Trump says close to doing something with China on trade

Given the close ties between the Australian and Chinese economies, the Aussie is "ground zero for Trump-Xi and trade", said Brad Bechtel, head of foreign-exchange at Jefferies LLC.

Trump is expected to pose for the usual "family photo" with the other world leaders gathered in Buenos Aires.

Russian news agencies quoted Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying the cancellation means that Mr Putin will have "a couple more hours" for "useful meetings" with G20 leaders.

The presence of Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, will be awkward for most of the Western leaders at the G20 summit in the wake of Jamal Khashoggi's murder.

"The last summits have been somewhat disappointing and marked by contention, particularly over trade-related issues".

The White House in recent weeks has reached out to the chief executives of German automakers including Daimler AG, BMW AG and Volkswagen AG about meeting to discuss the status of auto trade.

Given that Trump doesn't appear to understand the issues, and China isn't going to surrender its aspirations, there is little reason to be optimistic about the outcome of the Trump dinner with Xi Jinping.

"The fact that this is an agreement in three languages adds to the level of technical complexity, and it is on that level that we're just being sure that all the i's are dotted and all the t's are crossed". PM Modi is expected to meet the United States President Donald Trump, Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo for a trilateral meet on the sidelines of the summit. "If companies don't want to pay Tariffs, build in the United States of America".

Trump - and especially officials in his administration - have tried traditional diplomatic strategies. Despite the president's positive attitude, financial analysts and experts have painted a different picture of the ongoing trade dispute with China.

"We have had a good stretch of solid growth by historical standards, but now we are facing a period where significant risks are materialising and darker clouds are looming", she said.

Morrison on Thursday flagged a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump at the summit, telling journalists to "watch this space".

Trump relishes the one-on-one dynamics with other world leaders.

"One of the concerns all year has been really the impact of trade protectionism", said Jim McCormick, a NatWest Markets strategist in London.

"I think we're very close to doing something with China, but I don't know that I want to do it, because what we have right now is billions and billions of dollars coming into the United States in the form of tariffs or taxes", Trump told reporters as he departed the White House to travel to the G-20. I'm open to making a deal.

Rather, the goal is "that there would be an indication, a kind of way ahead that the advisors could then pursue", Bolton said. He said it was evidence steel jobs were returning to America because of tariffs he imposed on steel imports.

China, while it has imposed retaliatory tariffs of its own on more than US$100b of USA imports, has made some concessions by opening segments of its economy to greater foreign investment and promising wider liberalisation.

But messages from the opposition party ahead of the summit have been mixed.

Other leaders may be warier and will likely try - as diplomatically as possible - to avoid being photographed with MBS.

Later he described what he said was the "bottom line" in the dealings with China. "It will be seen as capitulation". Dairy farmers have already begun selling off family businesses, while major companies such as Caterpillar, Whirlpool and Stanley Black & Decker have blamed increased import taxes for higher prices to consumers.
