US Treasury Janet Yellen expressed major concerns about Trump’s trade deal with China, the first indication from the Biden administration reexamining its future agreements with China. CNY USD dips -0.14%, EUR USD slips -0.29%.
- The agreement signed by the Trump administration and China in January last year was designed to stop damaging trade war.
- The Biden administration has not decided on whether to uphold the deal or scrap it or pursue to replace it with a new trade deal.
- After 18 months, the trade agreement is the only area of stability in a declining relationship between the two nations, with conflicts over human rights and origins of the Covid-19 raging.
- China is happy with the trade deal, even as it challenges US actions in other areas.
