China and U.S. declared a 90-day trade truce on Saturday after talks between Chinese President Xi Jinping and his United States counterpart Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina. China raised its tariff on auto imports from the USA from 15 percent to 40 percent in retaliation for Trump administration tariffs on imports from China.
Mr Trump later wrote on Twitter that China would "reduce and remove" tariffs on US-made cars, which had been raised to 40% over the summer as tensions escalated.
While Washington touted the immediate increase in Chinese purchases of United States agricultural products, Beijing's statement was much more open, with no reference to immediate or agricultural products.

"What he's saying to his own people has more long-term validity than what he's saying to Trump over dinner for the sake of everyone saving face", Khanna said. The U.S. now charges a 27.5 per cent tax on imported cars from China.
U.S. markets initially gained more than 1% on Monday, but the enthusiasm dimmed a bit later, as it remained unclear how the two countries will resolve their underlying differences.
While the meeting didn't mean the trade war has come to an end, the agreement offered hope for a resolution of trade disputes, especially for the semiconductor industry that relies heavily on the manufacturing steps in multiple geographic regions, according to William Stein, an analyst at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey.
The White House announced it wouldn't raise the 10 percent tariffs to 25 percent, instead giving the two countries 90 days to talk out their problems.
"This Statement is not a formal agreement, but the tone and direction seems very constructive for semis", said Stein in a note out on Monday.
