US trade coalition calls for removal of tariffs as phase-one deal with China takes effect

The US trade coalition’s statement came after a survey showed Thursday that members of the US-China Business Council (USCBC) overwhelmingly view the China-US phase-one trade deal as positive for the commercial environment and bilateral relations. Among those with a positive view, the majority believes the agreement stabilizes their bilateral relationship and prevents imminent imposition of new tariffs, according to the USCBC, which represents over 200 US companies that do businesses in China.
