Deep Dive into the US-China Trade Negotiation Impasse
Monday, August 26, 2019, 7:00 pm
Crane Club, 46 Kim Yam Rd, #01-06, Singapore 239351

The trade negotiation between the U.S. and China has been ongoing for more than a year during which we see escalating tension between the two nations and retaliatory sanctioning from both sides. It is widely believed that the U.S. sees China as a great competitor for dominant leadership in the world. Nevertheless, no country in the world will benefit in the long run from the antithesis between the U.S. and China be it in trade, technological development or in environmental issues, etc.

China is keen to resolve – or at least de-escalate – the trade negotiation for they are increasingly worried about the effects of the trade negotiation on the slowing Chinese economy, and they would not want to be cut off from US technology that they see as critical to upgrading China’s economy and ensuring long-term sustainable growth. On a similar note, clinging onto the cold-era mentality does the U.S. no good but harm. The trade tensions would only jack up cost of production for many industries, severely affecting employment. In fact, many speculate that if no deal is reached with China, global recession will be the inevitable outcome.

As of now, tensions have escalated again and uncertainties are looming; with the mercurial Trump and hardliner Xi being brought to the wrestling arena, we shall see if the negotiations progress or continue to be stuck in impasse. We are honoured to invite you to join us for a panel discussion on the trade negotiation with the focus on challenges faced by banking industry, regional security and regulatory issues in policy implementation.
