If the proposals go ahead it is likely to boost the global economy, which has been hammered by tensions between.

While the USA may be seeing record revenue from the tariffs, it may not last.

The Chinese Commerce Ministry said the two sides would decide how much tariffs would be rolled back in first phase.

US locations for a Trump-Xi meeting that had been proposed by the White House, including Iowa and Alaska, have been ruled out, according to a person familiar with the matter.
