The United States has high quality supply in the fields of energy, manufactured goods, agricultural products, medical care and financial services, said Meng Wei, spokesperson for China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), at a press conference on Sunday.

China will boost purchases of US goods and services by $200 billion over two years in exchange for the rolling back of some tariffs under an initial trade deal between the world’s two largest economies.

Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, who signed the trade deal with US President Donald Trump earlier this week, said the deal would not affect “third parties’ interests”, apparently in reference to deals made with other suppliers of farm goods.

Chinese companies will import US agricultural goods according to consumers’ need, and demand and supply in the market, Liu told reporters, according to CCTV.
