The draft of final joint communique of meeting, which gathered G20 finance ministers and central bank chiefs, has been agreed and includes provisions on global trade, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble said on Saturday.

Breaking a decade-long tradition of endorsing open trade, G20 finance ministers and central bankers made only a token reference to trade in their communique on Saturday, a clear defeat for host nation Germany, which fought the new USA government's attempts to water down past commitments.

The U.S., represented by Steven Mnuchin in his first appearance at an worldwide forum as Treasury Secretary, argued that trade arrangements need to be made fairer, in line with the administration's claims the U.S. has had a bad deal from the current setup. He also said an overhaul of the USA tax code was overdue and that the United States would rethink regulations put in place after the Great Recession. Still, the dialogue was friendly and non-confrontational, leaving the door open to a future deal, officials who attended the meeting said.
"I understand what the president's desire is and his policies and I negotiated them from here, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome", he said.
