EXPERT SERIES Podcast: Deborah Elms - US / China trade relations and Asia
The Expert Series welcomed back Deborah Elms of the Asian Trade Centre for a discussion on US – China trade relations and the implications for Asia.
Two things that are particularly interesting, from the Q&A session, include the fact that the Trump administration has inserted a clause into the new USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement) which prohibits Canada and Mexico from establishing trade agreements with non-market economies, which is clearly aimed at China. Secondly, Paul and Deborah look at the winners and losers across the region. Those countries that will embrace the opportunities as supply chains look for alternatives away from China such as Vietnam and those countries such as India that look poised to miss out on an extraordinary opportunity.
