Trump and Xi Jinping will talk about the trade war and other US-China issues during a working dinner during a G20 meeting. Global Times editor Hu Xijin on US-China relations, press freedom in Among other issues, he has pushed for more free speech and less.
Comparison, and hence implicit competition, between the two largest economies in the world today is unavoidable.
The trade war is here to stay: both China and the US are gearing up for a long, hard fight
However, competition need not be destructive. The champion this year is the IBM Summit, an American machine that beat the Sunway TaihuLight, a Chinese computer which topped the Top list of supercomputers in andand which uses entirely Chinese-made chips.
This is not unlike the Sputnik moment inwhich spurred the US to accelerated development of science and technology. The trade war, which has the potential to disrupt the supply of advanced semiconductors from the US, is likely to reinforce Chinese determination to become self-sufficient in them.
It will take the Chinese the rest of the 21st century to close the gap, if at all. In terms of the total number of nuclear warheads, the US is leading by at least an order of magnitude.
This is not a competition that China should wish to win. On the other hand, a race to find an effective cure for cancer would be a worthwhile project for both countries and, in fact, the world.
Intellectual property protection in China has actually been improving steadily since special intellectual property courts were set up in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou in As the Chinese begin to innovate, they themselves will demand the strengthening of intellectual property rights protection in China.
Tesla announces plan for first overseas plant in Shanghai Forced technology transfer has to do with Chinese requirements for foreign direct investors in certain industries to become equal joint-venture partners with Chinese enterprises.
This issue has now become mostly moot, as foreign direct investors are allowed to have per cent ownership in many industries. For example, in the automotive industry, Tesla has established a wholly-owned subsidiary in Shanghai.
However, General Motors has indicated it does not intend to buy out its Chinese joint-venture partner even though it is now possible to do so.

The solution to cybertheft should be a vigorous prosecution of perpetrators on both sides, with the cooperation of both governments. I believe that instances of state-sanctioned commercial cybertheft are rare. However, one cannot rule out freelancers financed by private individuals and firms. Huawei is most reputed Chinese brand Trade in technology, including cross-border investment, will probably remain problematic as long as national security and technological competition have to be taken into consideration.
Just as the US government discourages the use of Huawei products for national security reasons, the Chinese government may also eventually decide that it is risky to rely on US hi-tech products.
The rise of populist, isolationist and protectionist sentiments in the US and elsewhere also has significant impacts on international trade and investment.
Even so, governments outside the US are in agreement about what they perceive as the threat from China, which is accused of using investments and merger deals to steal technologies and gain access to sensitive data that could endanger national security.
During the cold war, there were concerns about the internet.
Berlin had hinted that it was prepared to use its new power to veto takeovers. Also last year, Germany joined France and Italy in calling for a Europe-wide mechanism for more rigorous review of foreign takeovers. The move was seen as a response to rising worries about transferring so-called dual-use technologies to China through investments.
What’s next for China-US ties as President Donald Trump begins year two at the White House?
Britain, which was one of the most welcoming nations towards Chinese investment under former prime minister David Cameron, is now following the lead of the US, Germany and France and expanding its regulatory entity into a separate unit, like CFIUS. Britain used to operate under a much looser approach to sensitive deals. Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei, for example, won a key contract with the leading British telecom provider BT 13 years ago.
Down the road, Chinese money will probably find a way to come out — and the world knows it needs China money Edward Mermelstein, foreign investment adviser Government ministers were frustrated late last year when they failed to block the purchase of British chipmaker Imagination Technologies by Chinese fund Canyon Bridge, which is owned by state-owned Yitai Capital.
The deal went through weeks after the Trump administration blocked Canyon from buying the US chip maker Lattice Semiconductor. Under the new proposal, the British government expects to review as many as 50 proposed foreign deals a year for national security concerns.
In each of the last two years it reviewed just one. Now the government can effectively review any deal, regardless of the size. In April, a British watchdog agency notified government agencies not to do any further business with the Chinese telecoms equipment maker ZTE, in tandem with the US blocking ZTE from buying American components for seven years.
