The goal of a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at this week’s G20 summit in Japan will be to restart trade talks and there was a pretty good chance that will happen, a senior administration official said on Tuesday.

 

The United States and China could agree not to impose new tariffs as a goodwill gesture, but it is unclear if that will happen at the meeting scheduled for Saturday, the official said on customary condition of anonymity.

The Reserve Bank Of New Zealand is widely expected to leave the Official Cash Rate (OCR) unchanged this week following last month’s cut of the benchmark to a record low 1.5pct.

 

A Reuters poll said all fifteen economists surveyed expect no change Wednesday. Financial markets are pricing in a probability of just 20pct that the rate is lowered this month.

Officially, Europe's centre-right political force is standing by Manfred Weber, its nominee for European Commission president — despite opposition from Emmanuel Macron and other EU leaders.

 

But the German standard-bearer of the European People's Party failed to get the necessary support at a summit in Brussels last week and looks unlikely to fare any better at another gathering meant to resolve the issue this Sunday.

 

EPP officials need a Plan B if Weber's candidacy can't be rescued and they want to retain the Commission presidency, currently held by Jean-Claude Juncker.
