MOFCOM: Restarting economic and trade consultation is not directly related to trade procurement
The Ministry of Commerce held a regular press conference today (25). At the press conference, the media asked questions. The Chinese enterprises concerned have started new purchases of American agricultural products. Is this one of the conditions for Sino-US economic and trade negotiations? In response, spokesman Gao Feng said that in order to better meet the needs of the domestic market, some enterprises are willing to voluntarily import some agricultural products from the United States. They have already made inquiries with American suppliers and will sign commercial contracts. The relevant procurement shall be decided by the enterprise independently and carried out in accordance with market rules. Restarting economic and trade negotiations is an important consensus reached at the meeting between the two heads of state in Osaka, which has no direct relationship with trade procurement.
