Delegations from Beijing and Washington are expected to hold trade talks in September, after speaking this week by phone.
The Trump administration said the talks were productive and announced the delay of some tariffs on Chinese electronics and toys for the holiday shopping season. But, the U.S. is expected to move forward with 10% tariffs on other goods on September first.
China said it’s fully prepared to respond and is suspending purchases of U.S. agricultural products.
To discuss all of this:
- John Gong is a professor of economics at the University of International Business and Economics.
- Yan Liang is an associate professor of economics at Willamette University.
- Jeff Moon served as an assistant U.S. Trade Representative for China and is an international trade consultant.
- Remi Piet is a research associate on political economy and foreign policy at Florida International University.
