Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index was not trading on Monday, as the city faced widespread demonstrations as part of the annual July 1 democracy march.

During a meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, the presidents of China and the U.S. agreed to temporarily put their trade war on halt. Trump and Xi both announced that they did not have any intention to impose new tariffs at the time.

Following the meeting, Trump announced that the renewed trade talks with China have “already begun.” The U.S. president has even said that he is considering lifting the ban on Chinese tech giant Huawei.

On May 16, the U.S. administration added Huawei to the list of companies that are banned from supplying telecommunication gear to U.S. companies and vice versa.
