The main event this week was the two-day G-20 summit in Japan starting today (Friday 28 June 2019) as Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping have agreed to meet each other on the side-lines tomorrow (Saturday 29 June 2019). However, this has become even more significant as the week has progressed as the US announced that it was adding more Chinese technology companies to its trade blacklist over national security concerns. Unfortunately this is likely to complicate trade deal negotiations, which we had initially hoped would restart.
