The U.S. has started negotiations with the European Union and China over a resolution to disagreements over solar trade, Reuters reported Thursday.

Doug Palmer writes Mike Froman, international economic affairs adviser to the president, supports a global agreement to reconcile issues related to solar energy trade.

Froman spoke to the Senate Finance Committee during a hearing for his nomination to become the U.S. trade representative, according to Reuters.

China threatened to impose fees duties on U.S. exports of polysilicon, which is used to make solar cells, in response to the U.S.’ move to impose taxes on solar energy products imported from China, Palmer reports.
