China’s Exports Fell Sharply in May
Exports from China fell in May by 7.5%, for the first time since February on a year-on-year basis, exacerbating concerns that the world’s second largest economy is set to clock lower than expected growth numbers. Exports in May plunged to $283.5 billion according to the country’s customs data, far worse than the 0.4% decline anticipated. The decline was so sharp that export volumes came in below their levels at the start of the year, after accounting for seasonality and changes in export prices. In April, China’s exports surpassed expectations slightly with a 8.5% yearly growth. However, the disappointing export figures in May indicate that the longer-term trend is down.June 7, 2023
U.S. Looking to Strengthen Latin America Ties to Counter Chinese Influence
The United States is looking for new tools and wants to build on its free trade agreements with Latin American nations, as part of its efforts to counter Chinese influence in the region. Washington intends to strengthen the U.S. position in the region through changes to the Development Finance Corporation, its development agency for lower and middle-income countries. The effort would include supporting changes at the Inter-American Development Bank, another development bank for Latin America; the Inter-American Dialogue, a policy institute; and the Organization of American States.June 2, 2023
First Deal of New U.S.-Taiwan Trade Framework Set to be Signed
The United States and Taiwan are set to sign first deal under a new trade framework called the U.S.-Taiwan Initiative on 21st Century Trade, which has been discussed between the two sides since last August. The two sides want to boost ties at a time when tensions have heightened with China over Taiwan. The new initiative has come into fruition after Washington excluded Taiwan from its larger pan-Asian trade initiative, the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF). Taiwan’s Office of Trade Negotiations said in a brief statement the first agreement under the framework would be signed in Washington on Thursday morning U.S. time, but gave no other details. The U.S. Trade Representative’s office said Deputy United States Trade Representative Bianchi would attend the event, but also did not elaborate.June 1, 2023
