China exports rise despite ongoing trade row with US

A weaker yuan can help neutralize USA tariffs on Chinese goods by making them more price competitive on worldwide markets.

He also said the United States will not do business with Chinese tech titan Huawei, despite earlier pledges to allow American firms to file for waivers from national security restrictions on the company's operations.

A weaker yuan makes Chinese exports more competitive, or cheaper to buy with foreign currencies.

U.S. and Chinese negotiators met in Shanghai in late July for the first time since talks collapsed in May, and were due to hold another round in September.
