Following the signing ceremony, the first CGTN-CCG high-end forum was held, during which CCG suggested 10 measures aimed at fostering stable Sino-US trade ties, as tensions between the world’s two largest economies have recently rippled through markets.

1. Campaign for a new mode of analyzing trade effects that would more accurately reflect how much US companies gain from the bilateral trade deficit, given the forces of the global value chains; and insist on including trade in services which China runs a large deficit with the US, such as tourism, education spending, immigration-oriented investments in the trade deficit analysis.

2. Lift the excessive export limits, especially on high tech products from American companies. This could be beneficial for US enterprises and would help balance the trade deficits of both nations.

3. Increase imports from the US, including consumer goods, energy, and agricultural products while reducing tariffs on goods such as automobiles and other high-value-added American products that are not central to the national economy, therefore fulfilling China’s WTO commitments.

4.Improve business environment and implement policies that have been long called forth to reduce barriers of market entry for US companies.

5. Promote the agreement between China and the US on cross-border e-commerce to benefit small businesses and consumers in both countries with substantial employment opportunities.

6. Extend the protection of intellectual property rights to foreign companies or taking foreign IP regulations into account.

7. Consider the establishment of an investment fund to help the US upgrade its infrastructure, capitalizing on China’s advanced technology and expertise in the field.

8. Enlist the participation of American companies in Belt and Road projects as third party partners.

9. Seize the opportunity to join the CPTPP discussions and facilitate the progress of multilateral trade systems building such as WTO, RCEP to sustain the momentum for global free trade.

10. Appeal cases of US violation of the WTO rules to the appellate body.

  • Harvey Dzodin: Trump’s terrible trade tariff trifecta

    The Trump tariffs are opposed by virtually every US CEO, and by most countries. The tariffs make absolutely no sense, except as throwing a bone to Trump’s blue-collar base. By poking his little fingers in China’s eye, and sloppily doing so at that, the US is inviting retaliation from the countries most hurt by the tariffs, of which China is not even one.
