Summary of this issue

 The prolonged China-US trade war is not only an issue between the two countries, but also casting shadow over global economy. The conflict between the two countries is not limited to trade alone but it has spilled over into currency, technology, and national security issues. The tension between the two countries is bringing huge risks to the world economy. In this issue of AEPR, many trade war related issues were discussed: What’s behind the Trump’s protectionism, causes, prospects and impacts of the China-US trade war, lessons learned from the trade wars during interwar period, and consideration of OPAs and WTO reform.
