President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart Donald Trump may have agreed at the G20 summit in Osaka to resu 上海乌托邦品茶微信
me trade negotiations, but the path to ending the trade war remains far from clear. After all, the two leaders had rea
ched a similar agreement at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires in December 2018 and that agreement ultimately fail
上海乌托邦ed, not least because the United States administration mistook China’s conciliatory attitude for weakness.
Whether the US administration makes the same mistake this time remains to be seen. In any case, it is worth considering how t 上海乌托邦品茶微信
he trade war might unfold over the coming months and years – and what China can do to protect itself.
US has not withdrawn tariffs it imposed earlier
上海乌托邦Import tariffs may, for the foreseeable future, remain steady – neither es
calating nor being rolled back. The agreement in Osaka kept the US administration from foll
owing through on its threat to impose additional tariffs on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods. But it did nothing to re 上海乌托邦品茶微信
verse past measures, such as the 15-percentage-point tariff hike, to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese p
roducts that the US implemented after the 11th round of talks broke down in May. 上海乌托邦
While these tariffs have not yet had serious consequenc
上海乌托邦品茶微信es for China’s economy, their effects are likely to deepen over time. But China may succeed in per
suading the US to remove them – or, at least, not raise them further – if it refrains from retaliating with tariffs of its own 上海乌托邦
on US goods. Instead, China should focus on reducing its bilateral trade surplus with the US on its own terms. It is incr
easingly clear that the US tariffs have done more damage to American businesses and consumers than to China’s. 上海乌托邦品茶微信
The US wants to create among Belt and Road partner countries doubt
s about the situation in Xinjiang, which is a core region on the Silk Road Economic Belt, and
thus dissuade them from participating in the Belt and Road Initiative.
Some American politicians and media will continue to proclaim
the US as the judge of the world and infringe upon other countries’ sovereignty. They are also ex
pected to hype up the Tibet issue and Taiwan question, even the Hong Kong issue. In fact, their involvement in the
recent protests against the amendments to Hong Kong’s extradition laws is cl
ear. But as a Uygur saying goes, camels march on as usual even when dogs bark furiously.
