At the same time, experts do not expect that the parties will achieve results in resolving trade disputes.
Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump will hold a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit, which will be held in Osaka on June 28-29, but it is not able to bring a breakthrough in the resolution of trade disputes. On Friday, the newspaper South China Morning Post reported, citing an influential government expert, former Chairman of the People’s Bank of China (Central Bank) Dai Xianglong.
“The leaders of China and the United States will meet at the end of next month in Japan, and I think there will be some positive news,” he said on Friday at a seminar held in Beijing on Chinese-American cooperation in the field of technology. At the same time, the expert expressed pessimism and doubts about the possibility of achieving a breakthrough in the settlement of trade disputes between the two powers at this stage.
Dai Xianglong currently holds the post of Deputy Chairman of the Chinese center for international economic exchanges.
Last week, Trump said that he was looking forward to meeting with Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the G20 summit in June in Osaka, in particular, to discuss bilateral disputes in the field of trade. At the same time, Beijing has not yet commented on and confirmed the possibility and feasibility of holding a summit in Japan.
