White House’s Navarro Points to November for U.S-China Phase One Deal

WASHINGTON, Oct 18 (Reuters) - White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Friday pointed to next month’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in Chile as the Trump administration seeks to formalize its “phase one” trade pact with China.

“We’re on the glide path to Chile and the meeting of the two presidents mid-November. And the plan there is to have an agreement, so we’ll see what happens,” Navarro said in an interview on Fox Business Network, referring to U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
