A flurry of diplomatic meetings and sanctions on investments in China. We will take a look at the developments and challenges in the China-U.S. relationship.

In their meeting last year, Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Joe Biden agreed to improve relations between Beijing and Washington. That was followed with a string of high-level visits by American officials in China. The Financial Times reported the meetings helped establish new lines of communication. 

Then, the United States slapped restrictions on investments in China. The Chinese Foreign Ministry called the move “economic coercion” that “violates principles of market economy and fair competition.” 

Joining the discussion:
