Blinken Says US to Rely on Alliances, Trade and Investment to Counter China

US-China Business Council President Craig Allen praised Mr. Blinken’s emphasis on diplomacy and criticism of a lack of reciprocity in access to Chinese markets. “This approach should include more trade dialogues and negotiations with a view to improving market access in China and removing US and Chinese tariffs which will benefit the US economy and support job growth,” Mr. Allen said. “A US strategy needs to include substantive and results-oriented dialogues between the US and Chinese governments, including ones that address market-distorting policies in China.”
