Stephen Cheung, president of the World Trade Center Los Angeles, will discuss the trade war and its impacts.
The US and China are now in a full-fledged trade war. The US accuses China of predatory policies towards American technology and intellectual property, a charge the Chinese deny. Nonetheless, tariffs have been placed on hundreds of billions of dollars of goods by both sides. Then Canada, at the US’s request, arrested the Chief Financial Officer of the Chinese company Huawei, one of the largest technology companies in the world. China responded by arresting two Canadian diplomats.
