With trade talks between the world's two largest economies, the US and China, about to begin on Thursday, media reports suggest that Beijing is ready to negotiate a partial trade deal. A possible agreement may be discussed so long as no more tariffs are imposed by the Trump administration (including planned levies due this month and in December), according to Bloomberg. Citing an official with direct knowledge of the negotiations, it reports that Beijing would offer non-core concessions, such as purchases of agricultural products, in return, but would not budge on major sticking points between the two sides. The source said negotiators were not optimistic about securing a broad agreement that would fully end the trade conflict.
