At the moment, rumors and news about the upcoming negotiations between the two titans of the modern world – China and the United States- are decisive for the energy market. It became known that at the weekend, official Beijing had limited the list of topics to be discussed at a future meeting. In particular, an industrial policy reform and the topic of state subsidies were ostracized. Analysts believe that at the moment, China has a significant advantage over the United States due to the scandal that initiated the start of the impeachment proceeding of the odious American president Donald Trump.
