BEIJING (Reuters) - China and the United States have created a “miracle” as companies from the world’s two largest economies signed deals worth some $253.4 billion over the past two days, China’s Commerce Minister Zhong Shan said at a briefing on Thursday.

“This is truly a miracle,” said Zhong on the second day of U.S. President Donald Trump’s state visit to China.
