History Of Trade Agreements With China

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivers a speech entitled “Communist China and the Future of the Free World,” signaling a profound change in U.S. policy. He says the era of engagement with the Chinese Communist Party is over and condemns its unfair trade practices, the theft of intellectual property, human rights violations in Xinjiang and Hong Kong, and aggressive measures in the East and South China Seas. He calls on Chinese citizens and democracies around the world to push Beijing to change its behaviour and respect the rules-based international order. The United States and China have several unresolved issues regarding bilateral trade between the two countries. The trade deficit between China and the United States increased significantly, with the volume of imports from China growing much faster than U.S. exports to China. This large trade deficit has been a problem for both economists and policy makers.

Some argue that it is an indicator of China`s unfair trade practices, while others attribute the imbalance to the strength of the Chinese economy and production systems heavily influenced by state intervention. The Trump administration has put in place several customs measures to reduce the trade imbalance. Nevertheless, the situation can be recovered – but only by companies qualified to do so, and with an understanding of Chinese rules, both from a legal and fiscal point of view. China has always been a tax game for foreign investors in its creative phase. We must pay attention to the details so as not to miss the bilaterally negotiated free trade agreements, which can be of great use. U.S. President Bill Clinton signed the 2000 U.S. China Relations Act in October, which gives Beijing a long-term normal trade relationship with the United States and paves the way for China`s accession to the World Trade Organization in 2001.

Between 1980 and 2004, trade between the United States and China increased from $5 billion to $231 billion. In 2006, China surpassed Mexico as the second largest trading partner of the United States after Canada. China has taken many steps to promote its foreign economic relations and maximize the role of imports, exports and foreign capital in economic development. Foreign trade organizations have been reorganized and import and export controls have been relaxed or strengthened in line with the trade balance and the level of foreign exchange reserves. From 1980 to 1983, large purchases of foreign facilities and equipment led to import restrictions.
