U.S. Announces Preliminary Phase One Trade Deal with China [December 19, 2019]   [open pdf - 686KB]

From the Document: "The Trump Administration announced on December 13, 2019, a draft agreement with the Chinese government on a subset of trade and investment issues the Administration raised in March 2018 under Section 301 of the U.S. Trade Act of 1974. The Chinese government has not formally agreed to the agreement and neither side has signed it. China is currently reviewing the text, leaving open the potential for disagreement or renegotiation of terms. If the process goes smoothly, U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Robert Lighthizer and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He could sign the agreement in January 2020 in Washington, DC, before starting phase two negotiations."
