Trade Agreement Between The Us And China
If these discussions are not able to resolve the dispute, other tariffs will come into effect. In such a scenario, the other party promises not to impose its own tariffs. If this is the case, one of the two countries can denounce in writing and withdraw from the agreement – and quickly bring the two countries back into a trade war scenario. The trade war is a common topic on Chinese social networks, a popular internet meme thanos, a villain of Marvel Comics and Marvel Cinematic Universe, who erases half of the entire life in the universe with the Infinity Gauntlet, jokes that Trump will wipe out half of Chinese investors in the same way.   Trade war was on the agenda of the G20 summit in 2018.  An August 2019 Harvard CAPS/Harris poll showed that 67% of registered voters wanted the U.S. to face Beijing because of its trade policy, while 74 percent of respondents said U.S. consumers would bear the brunt of the tariff burden. Mark Penn, co-director of Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll, said the poll shows strong U.S. public support for Trump`s trade policy against China, and said, “You realize that tariffs can have a negative impact on jobs and prices, but they think the fight is the right one.”  Former Vice President Joe Biden said, “As Trump wages a damaging and unpredictable trade war with no real strategy, China is positioning itself to lead the world in the field of renewable energy.”  The agreement limits more than two years of tense negotiations and increasingly intense threats that have at times seemed to plunge the United States and China into a permanent economic war. Mr. Trump, who was running for president in 2016 promising to be tough on China, urged his negotiators to rewrite trade conditions that his party said would have destroyed U.S. industry and jobs, and he imposed record tariffs on Chinese goods to ensure Beijing complied with its demands.
At the same time, China imported more pork to cope with local shortages caused by the epidemic, resulting in U.S. pork exports exceeding their 2020 target (see Chart 3). In September, Chinese pork imports from the rest of the world also increased by more than 400% compared to 2017. And in one of the few parts of the first phase agreement, which includes political commitments (Chapter 3), China has agreed to remove technical barriers that had slowed pork imports. In August 2019, Peter Navarro, Trump`s trade adviser, said tariffs do not harm Americans.
