Opinion: Sino-U.S. Summit to Test Nations’ Willingness to Address Trade Issues Responsibly
Trade will be one of the biggest issues on the agenda when U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping meet in Florida on Thursday and Friday.
During his presidential campaign, Trump threatened China with a range of hostile measures, such as naming China a currency manipulator and imposing a 45% tariff on Chinese imports. The U.S. list of legitimate economic issues with China is certainly long, including intellectual property rights theft, trade barriers and investment restrictions, to name just a few. The upcoming summit should go a long way in demonstrating whether the two economic giants can address these issues responsibly, or whether relations will deteriorate into a trade war.
