US Reaches Trade Deals With Japan, Says Donald Trump


The administration of US President Donald Trump has notified Congress of its plan to sign a trade deal with Japan.

Along with that deal, Trump says he'll also be entering into an executive agreement with Japan regarding digital trade.

Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Tuesday that a currency provision won't be included in the deal.

Neither agreement would require a vote in Congress under the so-called "fast track" approval process.

Washington, meanwhile, will make it easier for Japan to increase US -bound beef exports by scrapping a 200-ton annual low-tariff quota, affording Japan the same beef trade status as Australia, New Zealand and Canada, Japanese media reported. The leaders said they hoped to sign the pact on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in NY later this month. However, the agreement notably excludes Japanese automobile sales to the USA, which have been the target of Trump's ire in the past and against which he's threatened to launch putative tariffs akin to those in place against Chinese imports.

Japan is expected to agree to cut tariffs on imports of USA beef and pork to within levels granted to signatories of the multilateral Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) pact, officials have said.

"Time to turn the page" - Neymar scores stunning winner on PSG return
After the game, Neymar said he didn't exactly blame the fans, but he understood what it was going to be like moving forward. The fans chanted that he was a 'son of a b--' and then Ultras took it even further by unfurling an offensive banner.

Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi, the country's point man for the trade talks with Washington, said Tokyo wanted to see the Trump administration lay to rest the threat of new auto tariffs before agreeing to a final trade deal.

Trump has made clear he is unhappy with Japan's trade surplus with the United States and wants a two-way deal to address it.

Trump also repeated his intention to move on eventually to a second step in the negotiations with Japan, which he called "a comprehensive trade agreement that results in more fair and reciprocal trade between the United States and Japan".

US technology industry officials say they expect the digital trade agreement with Japan to be closely aligned with provisions in the new US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which follow the US model for internet development.

The statement came less than a month after Trump had announced an agreement "in principle" with Japan at the Group of 7 summit in Biarritz, France.

Those provisions aim to ensure the free flow of data across borders without taxation, prohibit data server localisation requirements and limit governments' ability to demand companies disclose their source code. -China trade war and lost market share.
