Hong Kong: HANG SENG INDEX (.HSI) amid hopes that progress can be made at U.S.-China trade talks later this week
Asian markets gained in early trading Tuesday amid hopes that progress can be made at U.S.-China trade talks later this week.
China confirmed that its top trade negotiator, Vice Premier Liu He, would lead its delegation in Washington for high-level talks starting Thursday. China has reportedly taken some issues that the U.S. views as points of contention off the negotiating table, however.
President Donald Trump on Monday said there was a “good possibility” of reaching a deal with China to end the yearlong tariff war, though he added he would not be satisfied with a partial deal.
Meanwhile, the U.S. blacklisted a group of Chinese artificial-intelligence companies that it said was making technology that the Chinese government was using to repress its Muslim minority.
The U.S. on Monday also signed a limited trade deal with Japan, giving U.S. farmers benefits they lost when Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in 2017.
Shares of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Ltd. 388, +2.30% jumped after the company announced it was dropping its $37 billion bid to buy the London Stock Exchange, after the two companies’ boards were “unable to engage.” The LSE had previously rejected HKEX’s bid, which turned hostile.
