In addition to the ceasefire in the US-China trade war, leaders of the world’s largest economies discussed World Trade Organization reform, stating that the structure is “falling short of its objectives and [that] there is room for improvement”. President Trump, along with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, signed the new U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement, replacing NAFTA.
