US touts European Union trade truce, attention now turns to China

Last week's announcement came as a surprise to many as the meeting came just one week after Mr. Trump referred to the European Union as a "foe" of the U.S. On Thursday, however, Mr. Trump said the U.S. and European Union are establishing an executive working group to hash out details on trade and assess existing tariffs "to the betterment of both".

On July 24, Trump announced a $12 billion aid package to farmers caught in the tariff tug of war.

The EU's pledge to import more soybeans from US farmers was the "dealmaker" in the agreement between European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and US President Donald Trump to stop the dispute and open trade talks, EU sources told EURACTIV.

Those commodities are soybeans, sorghum, corn, wheat, cotton, dairy, and hogs.

Companies with many assets will generally be able to weather the trade war - the people who won't are small and medium farms. "[Car dealers are] already beginning to cancel orders with the manufacturers because they're fearful of tariffs. that can convert to less jobs, and job layoffs".

"No one wins in a trade war".

There wasn't a lot of positive hoopla from soybean farmers either. Those include "zero tariffs" and to "reduce barriers and increase trade in services, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, medical products, as well as soybeans".

If farmers hurt by President Trump's trade war deserve government assistance, as the president has proposed, than so do ME lobstermen, who are watching the lucrative Chinese market dry up, and the price of the steel in the traps they need rise.

Apart from taking a tough stance against China-which has forced Beijing to fight back-Washington has also stretched the trade dispute to geopolitical issues, including cross-Straits relations, the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue and the Iran nuclear deal, from which the United States withdrew on May 8.

More details on each facet of the program will be unveiled in the coming weeks and months.

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture will take several actions to assist farmers in response to trade damage from unjustified retaliation, South Carolina Department of Agriculture Communications Director Sally McKay said in a recent news release. "A refusal to bend on tariffs on imported vehicles could lead to another stalemate".

Kiwis to get glimpse of blood moon
The earth comes in between the sun and moon, while the crossing shadows when falls on the moon, creates this celestial happening. In a special treat, Mars is also at its closest approach to Earth this week since 2003, making it appear bigger and brighter .

Zoo accused of painting donkeys to look like zebras
Sarhani was visiting the International Garden municipal park in Cairo earlier this month when he came across the freaky exhibit. For starters, their ears were bigger and their snouts were lighter than those of the typical zebra.

For one, this program can not create additional foreign demand that does not exist.

"As of yet, there's not much evidence that the trade dispute between the two superpowers has had a big effect on Africa".

After a phony war stretching to the earliest days of his presidency, Donald Trump fired off the loudest salvo yet in his trade battle with China in July.

There is no doubt China and the other countries with trade imbalances now know their trade deficits with the United States will have to come down. What if the Chinese trade negotiations turn around and end up being a huge windfall for USA soybean producers?

Moody's Analytics estimates that if the tariffs were imposed on autos and most Chinese imports and other countries retaliate as expected, annual USA growth would slow by 0.5 percentage point by mid-2019.

By the mid-2000s, that share was just below 40 percent.

"The U.S. will be the only real source of soybeans in the world" by this October, Suderman said.

It is clear that USDA's efforts are not going to establish a comparable trade relationship anytime soon. If China's leaders really are weaponising the yuan, they are following a high-risk strategy, both for their own country and for the rest of Asia.

This program may not directly influence grains and oilseeds, though, as the commodities the agency listed were fruits, nuts, rice, legumes, beef, pork, and milk. "Low tax rates, rolling back regulations, opening up energy, for example, trade reform, which I think is already paying off with respect to the European Union agreement we did last week - the fundamentals of the economy look really good".

Signup for the payment program will begin in September, which implies that no recovery in demand or prices is expected for a couple months, at the very minimum.
