In addition, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told at Senate hearing that trade negotiations with China were constructive and he would travel to Beijing soon to resume talks.

 

On the other hand, Mnuchin noted that America is negotiating to resolve trade disputes, adding that the problem of resolving the tariffs problem on steel with Canada and Mexico is on its way to be resolved.
