The White House has announced plans to negotiate separate trade deals with Britain, the European Union and Japan.

近日,白宫方面宣布计划与英国、欧盟及日本分别进行贸易谈判。

"We are committed to concluding these negotiations with timely and substantive results for American workers, farmers, ranchers and businesses," U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said last Tuesday.

美国贸易代表罗伯特·莱特西泽上周二表示:“我们致力于完成这些谈判,为美国工人、农民、农场主和企业带来及时和实质性的结果。”

He added that the White House wanted to "address both tariff and non-tariff barriers and to achieve fairer and more balanced trade."

他补充道,白宫想要“解决关税和非关税壁垒,实现更公平和更平衡的贸易。”

As required by law, Lighthizer sent three separate letters to Congress announcing the intention to open trade talks.

按照法律的要求,莱特西泽分别向国会递交了三份申请宣布开展贸易谈话的计划。

He wrote that the negotiations with Britain would begin "as soon as it's ready" after Britain's expected exit from the European Union on March 29.

他写道,在英国于3月29日如愿退出欧盟之后,美国应“尽快准备”与其开始正式的谈判。

Lighthizer called the economic partnership between the U.S. and EU the "largest and most complex" in the world, noting the U.S. has a $151 billion trade deficit with the EU

莱特西泽称美国与欧盟之间拥有世界上“体量最为巨大,关系最为复杂的”经济合作关系,并指出美国与欧盟之间存在1510亿美元的贸易逆差。

Writing about Japan, Lighthizer said it is "an important but still often underperforming market for U.S. exporters of goods," noting that Washington also has a large trade deficit with Tokyo.

在谈到日本时,莱特西泽表示,“对于美国的商品出口商来说,这是一个重要但往往表现不佳的市场”,并且他指出美日两国之间也存在着巨大的贸易逆差。
