Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) U.S.-Sino standoff has proven a distraction
Expectations around a trade deal between China and the U.S. are on the rise, but fixing that strained relationship won’t be enough to solve China’s growth conundrum or address the problem of rising funding costs for emerging-market economies, one analyst says.
President Donald Trump and President Xi Jingping are expected to meet during the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires later this month to talk trade, among other things. Last week Trump told Fox News that there was potential for a “great deal with China,” and tweeted that he had a “long and very good conversation” about trade with the Chinese leader.
Last month’s release third quarter GDP numbers showed that China’s economy grew less than expected — 6.5% — and at its slowest pace since the financial crisis. The idea of a slowing Chinese growth figure has long been a concern of investors across asset classes, but renewed worries also come on the coattails of rising trade and budget deficits in the U.S. and sluggish economic data out of Europe. Together this paints a bleak picture for global growth.
