With the Biden administration taking over the White House this election it is apparent that many things will be changing. One thing, however, that is not projected to change that much is the trade tension between the U.S. and China. Earlier this year Biden wrote, “The United States does need to get tough with China” in a “Foreign Affairs” article. He went on to say, “If China has its way, it will keep robbing the United States and American companies of their technology and intellectual property. It will also keep using subsidies to give its state-owned enterprises an unfair advantage – and a leg up on dominating the technologies and industries of the future.” With that said China is hopeful that because there is new blood in the White House, this new Biden administration will welcome new negotiations. China’s Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng believes that the Biden administration would “meet China halfway” according to state media. Xu Hongcai, deputy director of the Economics Policy Commission at the China Association of Policy Science believes that “Biden is reasonable” and “Biden, Obama, they understand the basics of holding a dialogue.” In Biden’s acceptance speech the ongoing trade war with China was absent. Since Biden’s acceptance speech he has still yet to bring up the issue. How Biden will actually handle the intense trade war that the Trump administration has left him, is still an unknown. What we do know is that Biden will have to prove that he can work more effectively with U.S. allies in order to win the heart and soul of the nation that is now in his hands. More news and updates will be coming up quickly as the White House transition continues.
