Asian markets advanced in early trading Friday after White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said a U.S.-China trade deal was close.

Speaking Thursday at the Council on Foreign Relations, Kudlow said there has been “very good progress,” and that an agreement was near, but while President Donald Trump “likes what he sees, he’s not ready to make a commitment.”

Earlier in the day, Chinese officials said rolling back tariffs was crucial to an agreement, while U.S. officials said China had not yet agreed to enough concessions to grant tariff relief.
