Trade War: a G20 Truce in Sight?

The Economist Intelligence Unit will be offering a 30-minute webinar on 27 June 2019 on the them “Trade War: a G20 Truce in Sight?” Two speakers, Agathe Demarais (Director of Global Forecasting) and Cailin Birch (Global Economist) will discuss the ongoing trade war between China and the US and the possible outcomes of a side discussion between heads of state of both countries later this month during the G20 meeting.

Registration is required to attend and can be completed using the form available here: https://pages.eiu.com/June-19-US-China-trade-war-webinar—USEMEA—Subscription-NB_Registration-Page.html

A full description of the webinar is as follows:

The ongoing trade war between the US and China has captured the headlines in recent weeks. In May the US increased existing tariffs of 10% on US$200bn worth of Chinese merchandise imports to duty rates of 25%, and China responded by raising its import tariffs on around US$60bn of US goods.

The stakes were raised again a few days later with a US proposal to apply additional tariffs across Chinese merchandise imports not yet covered by punitive tariffs, worth around US$300bn per year.

Against this backdrop, The Economist Intelligence Unit has come to the view that the most likely outcome of a planned meeting between US president Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, his Chinese counterpart, on the sidelines of the G20 meeting on June 28th-29th will be of a truce in tariffs escalation, probably until at least 2020.

But questions remain, such as:

    • Is a US-China trade deal still a realistic prospect, or will the two sides fail to reach a compromise?
    • Is the US going to take the first step towards de-escalation, or is the ball in China‚Äôs court?
    • What happens if no deal is inked, and what would this mean for global growth?

Economist Intelligence Unit is a resource available to WTO staff, Member State delegations, and WTO Library patrons, through a subscription managed by the WTO Library. If there are any questions about this or other Library resources, please do not hesitate to contact us at web.librarian@wto.org.

Digital or Trade? The Contrasting Approaches of China and US to Digital Trade by Henry Gao.

With the growing importance of the internet, digital trade, or electronic commerce, has become a key issue in international trade regulation. As the home to some of the largest internet companies in the world, the USA took the lead in bringing the issue into the WTO and has been the leading proponent on the issue. In contrast, the developing countries were quite sceptical and reluctant to engage on discussions on the issue. Recently, however, several developing countries have changed their positions and become more active participants. Chief among them is China, which has raised some interesting proposals both within and beyond the WTO. The issue also emerged as one of the main issues discussed at the 11th Ministerial Conference of the WTO. This article provides a critical examination of the contrasting approaches of the US and China on the issue. It argues that, the US approach tends to focus more on the ‚Äėdigital‚Äô nature of digital trade, while the Chinese approach prefers to address the issue from the traditional ‚Äėtrade‚Äô perspective. The article analyses the reasons for the different approaches, and provides some suggestions on how to move forward on the issue at MC11 and beyond given the differences between the two approaches.

US and Chinese Strategic Trade Policies and Product Differentiation in the ASEAN Apple Market

ABSTRACT:
We investigate oligopolistic competition between US and Chinese apple exporters in the ASEAN market using strategic trade theory and the NEIO literature. We also analyze competition in the US and Chinese domestic markets. The US supplies higher quality apples to ASEAN than China, resulting in product differentiation. The results show that US exporters had a higher markup than Chinese exporters through the 1990s; however, as the share of Chinese apples expanded, the US markup declined and the Chinese markup increased dramatically. Competitive pricing prevails both in the US and Chinese domestic markets.

Factor proportions and the growth of world trade

Abstract:
Most of the expansion of global trade since 1980 has been of the North‚ÄďSouth kind ‚ÄĒ between capital-abundant developed and labour-abundant developing countries. Based on this observation, I argue that the recent growth of world trade is best understood from a factor-proportions perspective. Using data on trade barriers and estimates of capital‚Äďlabour ratios for a group of 45 economies between 1980 and 2008, I find that a calibrated factor-proportions model can generate significant trade growth during this period, amounting to 90% of the observed rise in North‚ÄďSouth trade. The opening up of China alone accounts for three quarters of the predicted increase. In line with the model, I present evidence that China’s liberalisation has raised the exports and imports of capital-abundant countries relative to more labour-abundant economies. Overall, my findings suggest that factor-proportions theory may be useful for interpreting several quantitative and qualitative aspects of growing world trade in a period during which the group of large, open economies has become significantly less homogenous.
