MCI Director and Lee Kai Hung Chair Prof Peter Gries has been interviewed by BBCWorld on US-China trade war
As the USA escalates its trade war with China, on Tuesday 18th September MCI Director Peter Gries was hosted on Impact-BBCWorld to talk about the potential impact of new tariffs on Chinese exports.
Peter's argument is that although China does engage in unfair economic practices, Trump’s trade war is a reflection of unilateralist and militarist trends within American conservatism, and the CCP is not likely to give in, as its legitimacy rests on anti-Western nationalism.
He concluded that, with no resolution in sight, US consumers, not the Chinese Government, are likely to pay higher prices for a variety of goods.
