April 30, 2019

(Reuters) – Copper miner Rio Tinto Ltd “firmly believes” that the United States and China will ink a trade deal, Chief Executive Jean-Sebastien Jacques told the CNBC television network on Tuesday.

Jacques added that Rio’s order books are “absolutely full” and that he sees the United States economy as “doing fine.” London-based Rio Tinto would see no impact at all from Brexit, said Jacques, who was born in France and now is a British citizen.
