The Hill: Steven Mnuchin: US, China trade talks must include currency12 October 2018 | 16:40 | FOCUS News Agency
“I expressed my concern about the weakness in the (yuan) currency and that as part of any trade discussions, currency has to be part of the discussion,” Mnuchin said of a meeting he had with People’s Bank of China Governor Yi Gang on the sidelines of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank annual meetings in Indonesia.
Mnuchin also said that Beijing must identify “action items” to address the two countries’ trade disputes before trade talks could continue.
“I think we had a productive explanation from his standpoint on those issues,” he said, adding that current circumstances have driven the yuan down against the dollar.
