China wrong target of tech competition, US experts warn

There are two approaches to the tech competition with China - how to better position the US and how to diminish China's competitive edge, said Anna Ashton, senior director of government affairs at the US-China Business Council. "There were an awful lot of actions taken by the Trump administration that were more in the latter camp - they were more about how to confine or slow down China's competitiveness," said Ashton. "We weren't yet at the stage of focusing on how to bolster US competitiveness domestically."
