Following US-China trade talks held last week, US president Donald Trump has said that China had pledged to purchase “massive amounts” of American agricultural products.

“China has agreed to buy massive amounts of ADDITIONAL Farm/Agricultural Products – would be one of the best things to happen to our farmers in many years!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “On China, Barriers and Tariffs to come down for first time,” he added.

Beijing and Washington pledged to keep talking about how China could import more energy and agricultural commodities from the United States to narrow the USD 335 billion annual US goods and services trade deficit with China, according to Reuters.
