China-US 'decoupling' not a realistic option

China-US economic decoupling is not a realistic option. First, the market attracts businesses. China is expected to continue contributing one-third of global economic growth over the next decade. With a population of 1.4 billion, and 400 million middle-class consumers, there is still huge potential in the Chinese market. Savvy entrepreneurs will not give up this market. "Decoupling" is essentially a market behavior, and the decision to do so rests with companies. Craig Allen, president of the US-China Business Council, recently expressed optimism, saying that US companies are willing to develop business and increase investment in China. The success of Shanghai Gigafactory, which is wholly owned by Tesla, is a case in point.
