03/23/2018: Fears of China-US trade war grow | China’s vision of “a shared future for all”

US President Donald Trump hit China with tariffs on up to 60 billion US dollars of Chinese goods this week. In response, China released a list of potential tariffs on three billion dollars’ worth of American goods. As concerns over a trade war grow between the world’s two largest economies, what is the likely fallout? Timothy Stratford, a managing partner of the international law firm Covington & Burling's Beijing office, and Victor Gao, a global counselor in the Asia Society, joined The Point.

Chinese President Xi Jinping’s vision of building “a community of a shared future for all humankind” was added to China’s Constitution by the country's top legislature at this year's Two Sessions. It’s been five years since the concept was first proposed in November 2012. How will China advocate this idea while the US and some EU members are pushing a “nation first” message? Xu Qinduo, a senior researcher at the Pangoal Institution, and Edward Lehman, managing director of Lee & Xu LLP, a Beijing-based law firm shared their views.
