Editorial: Sino-U.S. Trade Conflicts Require Resolute Actions From Beijing

President Xi Jinping’s chief economic advisor Liu He is departing for Washington on Tuesday in a bid to defuse trade tensions. It is a timely move, as the U.S. has been drumming up rhetoric of China’s trade imbalances and threatening reprisals.

Based on national security concerns, the U.S. Commerce Department recommended imposing quotas or harsh tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, especially on a few key countries that include China. A series of investigative reports on China are expected to come out soon. U.S. President Donald Trump’s decisions following these reports will be worth China’s attention.
