U.S.-China trade surplus narrows to $40.75 billion, Beijing far from meeting purchase commitments under Phase 1 deal

According to Chinese customs data released on Tuesday, Beijing’s trade surplus with the United States has narrowed to $30.75 billion in September, down from $34.24 billion a month earlier.
