As China is still in a transition duration from export-driven to domestic-consumption-driven, it will have to continue to rest on a tellurian direct for a substantial volume of time. As a result, reaching an agreement nonetheless not compromising too most will be a ethereal dance for China to play in a assembly subsequent week.
