US-China trade relationship developments roundtable
The Trump administration has suspended, until further notice, a scheduled tariff increase – to 25% from 10% on $200bn of Chinese imports – citing progress in trade negotiations between Washington and Beijing. Despite this, tensions between the two countries remain high. As the rest of the world assesses the consequences of this discord, Hung Tran, former executive managing director of Institute of International Finance, will argue that it is important to assess US-China trade relations from a wider perspective. At this roundtable he will discuss how Washington’s assessment of its relationship with Beijing has changed from being co-operative and competitive commercially to being competitive geopolitically and increasingly antagonistic. In this context, trade measures such as tariffs and non-tariff barriers will be increasingly used in the service of national security.
