  • China’s top trade negotiator to visit Germany next week before Xi-Trump meeting at G20
  • Germany likely to be hit hard if US put tariffs on auto exports and, like China, has trade surplus with the US – but it shares some US concerns on China

China will be seeking to step up trade policy coordination with European nations when Vice-Premier Liu He visits Germany next week for financial talks, to help protect it as the trade war with the United States continues.
