Trump arrives in China in the middle of a commercial dispute

The US president has repeatedly referred to the trade deficit of his country with China. Trump and Xi Jinping will head business forum. Agreements were signed for 9,000 million dollars.

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, arrived today, accompanied by his wife Melania, to Beijing, to carry out a state visit to China aimed at improving ties between the two main world powers.

The Air Force One plane landed in Terminal 3 of the Beijing airport after 2:35 pm local time (6:35 GMT), where the president was received by authorities of the communist regime, an honor guard of the People’s Liberation Army and excited children with the flags of both countries.

Later, Trump and his wife were received in the Forbidden City, the former Chinese imperial palace, by his counterpart Xi Jinping and the first lady, Peng Liyuan, beginning the agenda of the US president in Beijing.

The two couples walked through the gigantic and cobbled courtyards of the palace, built in the fifteenth century, which was the residence of the Chinese sovereigns and center of power in the Ming and Qing dynasties (until 1911).

In an enclosure that on holidays or weekends can receive hundreds of thousands of visitors, but was emptied for the occasion for security and enjoyment of the American couple, the Trump and his hosts posed before the photographers (one of them stumbled upon a cobblestone breaking his camera and his glasses).

The official part

In his first visit to China as president, Trump plans to meet again with his Chinese counterpart tomorrow, when he will preside over the holding of a business forum and the signing of several bilateral agreements in the Great Hall of the People.

The visit follows the meeting that Xi and Trump held in April at the private residence of the American tycoon in Mar-a-Lago (Florida, USA), a meeting that marked differences between two governments traditionally confronted by commercial issues and ideological differences.

Millionaire agreements

Companies from China and the United States signed today almost twenty trade agreements valued at 9,000 million dollars, during the first day of the visit to Beijing by US President Donald Trump.

The 19 agreements, which include sectors such as energy, aeronautics or agriculture, were signed at a ceremony chaired by US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Chinese Vice Premier for Economic Affairs Wang Yang at the Great Hall of the People.
