Tensions between the US and China have spilled over from the trade war into a number of other strategic areas, and are now joint by disputes over territorial claims in the South China Sea and military cooperation. Last month during a meeting on nonproliferation in the United Nation, President Trump directly accused China of interfering in the U.S. midterm elections in retaliation for the ongoing trade war, marking a new front in the deepening hostilities that have threatened to upend bilateral relations.
The world is watching as the upcoming midterm elections in the US is closing in. Some experts say that no real improvement in the trade tensions between the U.S. and China is expected until after midterm elections. But what can we really expect? We have invited Andrew Polk to discuss outcomes from the midterm election and how these may affect the Global trade tensions, the Chinese economy and the diplomatic relationship between China and the US.
Andrew Polk is a co-founder at Trivium/China and head of the firm's economic research. He was previously director of China research at Medley Global Advisors and resident economist at the Conference Board's China Center.
