Tense relations between China and the US, a pandemic, and limited access to the country are firmly limiting a new generation of China hands to explore a career in the second economy of the world, says China professor Victor Shih in the South China Morning Post. “China was [once] seen as a kind of land of opportunity for young foreigners. That is no longer the case,” said Shih,
China did not comply with the conditions it signed up for when it entered the World Trade Organization (WTO), says former White House advisor Harry Broadman at the NACD Northern California Chapter in a discussion about American business in China. And while US president Joe Biden has taken on China bilaterally, it needs collective action to change the country’s attitude to trade, he adds.
The new US president Biden is following closely his predecessor’s approach on China. Wrongly, says long-term China correspondent Ian Johnson in an opinion piece at the New York Times. “Washington’s plan appears to be to wait for the results of the comprehensive review of America’s national security policy toward China that Mr. Biden announced in February. This caution is a mistake,” says Johnson.
