China is still implementing the first phase of the US-China trade deal, but hopes for a coordinated response to address the pandemic.

According to reporting from Reuters and the Global Times, China’s ambassador to the United States said that phase one of the Sino-US trade pact is being implemented.

Cui Tiankai said China was still buying US agricultural goods, and was lifting some curbs faced by foreign companies entering its financial market, the tabloid affiliated to the Beijing-controlled People's Daily newspaper said.
