Consul General Zhao's Op-ed Article on Sino-US Relations Published in StarTribune

The US trade deficit with China arises from differences of the two countries' economic structures and the simple fact that the US consumes more than it produces. Study by US-China Business Council and AmCham China found that trade with China has promoted US economic growth, employment and international competitiveness, and most of the American businesses in China plan to increase investment in the country. The trade war, however, has cost the US economy 250,000 jobs and $108 billion in lost GDP, and cost each American household $675. There is no winner in a trade war, and decoupling will only make both sides losers.
