Trade Agreement Details

Below are the details of the agreement issued by the U.S. Trade Representative. Beijing has yet to release a version of the deal in Chinese, after an extended translation process that extended until Tuesday night. This result is worrying because it takes trade policy back to the 1980s and uses an instrument that works outside of current international rules. The combination of unrelated national security issues to push Korea to make concessions indicates a new approach to trade negotiations, which we will likely see more from the Trump administration. 16.

The COVID-19 pandemic initially put the Chinese economy on the trail, but trade recovered faster than most. And some U.S. exports to China — including medical care, pork and semiconductors — actually accelerated in 2020. However, the WTO has raised some concerns. According to Pascal Lamy, Director-General of the WTO, the dissemination of regional trade agreements (SAAs) is “. is the breeding of worry – concern about inconsistency, confusion, exponentially rising costs for businesses, unpredictability and even injustice in business relations. “[2] The WTO is of the view that typical trade agreements (which the WTO describes as preferential or regional) are, to some extent, useful, but that it is much more advantageous to focus on global agreements within the WTO framework, such as the negotiations in the current Doha Round. Relying solely on purchasing targets, not only China`s problematic policy, which harms Americans, also helps to consolidate state planning in relation to market outcomes.

In particular, because China continues to impose discriminatory retaliatory duties on U.S. exporters, only its state-owned enterprises, not the Chinese private sector, will increase many of the purchases to fulfill obligations – the opposite of what U.S. politicians say they want. The goals of the deal also send signals to U.S. economic allies that the U.S. is primarily interested in diverting imports by China from its suppliers instead of addressing China`s problematic policies and undermining their confidence in U.S. policy. 30.

The monetary agreement provides for China`s commitment to renounce competitive currency devaluations and not to orient its exchange rate towards a trade advantage – a language that China has accepted for years as part of its commitments to the group of twenty major economies. . . .
