One-on-one negotiations to be central to US trade policy: Peter Navarro

TAKESHI KAWANAMI, Nikkei staff writer | China

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. will make bilateral deals central to the country's trade policy after its withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, according to a top trade adviser to the Donald Trump administration. The comments were made by Peter Navarro on Sunday on a U.S. TV program. 

The view by Navarro, hand-picked by Trump to head the National Trade Council, is seen as an indication that a comprehensive bilateral free trade deal may emerge as a key item at the meeting between the new president and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe scheduled for Feb. 10 in Washington.
