Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin may offer the Group of 20 something the world hasn't heard yet from the new US administration on currency and trade policy: reassurance.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Thursday in Berlin that the Trump administration had no desire to get into trade wars, but certain trade relationships need to be re-examined to make them fairer for U.S. workers. He said, without providing specifics, that some USA trade agreements need to be re-examined, while adding that, "It is not our desire to get into trade wars".
He said moving all those functions overseas would cause huge upheaval and he wants to negotiate a Brexit deal that keeps London strong: "I am not sure whether it would be very beloved in Paris to say so, but we have our own interest, even after Brexit, to have a strong financial centre in London".
During the campaign, Trump said he would consider any number of economic tactics to address trade deficits, including tariffs, currency sanctions and vowing to rewrite or cancel entire trade deals, though he has yet to follow through on any of those threats in the opening weeks of his presidency. A joint statement to be issued Saturday is likely to repeat the past stance on forex.
