Trade War Truce Will Relieve the U.S., for now
On February 24, U.S. President Trump twitted that he would delay the tariffs increase due to progress in negotiations with China, indicating that the possibility of reaching an agreement increases. The Sino-US trade friction in the past few months has confirmed that continued confrontation can only hurt China and the United States and even endanger the global economy. According to Reuters, the trade war has caused billions of dollars in losses to both sides. After announcing the above decision, Trump made a speech at the White House and expressed his hope to reach a trade agreement with China that is beneficial to both countries. In fact, if the issue gets properly resolved, it will be positive news not only for China and the United States but also for the whole world. ...2019-03-07
How Does China Really Think About WTO Reform?
It has been roughly two decades since China was permitted to join the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001. Prior to its accession, there was one economic metric on which it already ranked first. China, by multiple estimates, had the largest economy outside the WTO, ranging from foreign trade to the stock of foreign direct investment. Given the skyrocketing growth of the Chinese economy during that time, it takes very little imagination to foresee that China’s leadership came to appreciate membership in the WTO as a watershed for the country to embark on a more promising economic future....2019-03-06

Challenges for the US-China Trade War ‘Truce‘
China and the United States agreed on a 90-day ceasefire in the trade conflict at the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires in December last year. Since then, roughly half of that 90 day period has come and gone. At the meeting, Chinese President Xi Jinping aimed to persuade Donald Trump, his American counterpart, to abandon plans to raise tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods to 25 percent starting in January 2019....2019-01-10

3 Types of Chinese Reactions to Mike Pence’s China Speech
Last week at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C., U.S. Vice President Mike Pence delivered the Trump administration’s first major policy speech on China. The speech was highly anticipated in both the United States and China because of its significance and the context in which it was delivered. Indeed, the Trump administration, since it took over in January 2017, has been criticized (rightly) for lacking a coherent China policy or even any China policy. ...2018-10-10
The US-China Trade War Has No Winners—Yet
There is little doubt that the most consequential geopolitical event this year is the ongoing trade war between China and the United States. A full-blown trade war between the two largest economies in the world is already in place with the most recent round of tariffs, with the United States imposing another $200 billion worth on Chinese goods and China retaliating with a $60 billion round on U.S. goods. Various analysts and commentators have hotly debated who will win the trade war and the impa...2018-10-10
