How will the outcome of the November presidential election affect relations between Washington and Beijing? Both Republican Donald Trump and the Democratic Party's Joe Biden have taken a tough approach towards China, but how different are their likely policy directions?
Over the past few years, the U.S.-China dispute has focused on not only the trade imbalance between the two countries, but also rivalry over global economic dominance and the fierce competition for technological supremacy. The tensions eased in January when the two superpowers signed the long-awaited Phase One trade deal, but have been mounting again since the coronavirus outbreak.
The pandemic, meanwhile, has plunged the world into recession and continues to transform the global economic landscape.
When the uncertainty surrounding the presidential election is over, will there be a change in America's stance and tactics on China? How can the world's two largest economies embrace the new normal of strategic power competition, and contribute to the global economic recovery? For investors and businesspeople, which sectors will be safest to avoid possible disruption in the future?
