Rising US-China Concerns: What’s at Stake

The US-China trade relationship is about more than just trade.

Bilateral investment, particularly for the US, is key because it creates jobs and improves two-way trade, he notes. “To the extent to which the tensions between the US and China impede further investment, it actually frustrates the goal of the US policymakers, because it becomes harder for the US to sell the things that it has a comparative advantage in.”
