ECIPE Lunch Seminar: The US-China Trade Conflict – Can it be Resolved?

June 13 2019
Venue: ECIPE Office, Av des Arts 40, 6th floor, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Frank Lavin
Time: 12:30

An event with Frank Lavin, former US Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade.

The US-China trade conflict has deepened recently. Even if reports keep suggesting that both sides want a negotiated outcome and arrive to a deal, the fact is that tariffs are increasing and that other measures – like export control measures on technology – have been introduced. Are China and the US locked into a trade conflict that will run on for years – exacerbating geopolitical frictions between the two – or is it likely that they will seek to resolve the disputes and reduce the level of trade tensions though a bilateral deal?
