What is real

In full-scale trade war, US and China are looking to tax each other at every opportunity.

Chinese experts believe that national security can be achieved in an open market, and the American approach only generates unnecessary trade barriers and hinders a balanced trade development. Also, such measures will only affect the interests of US companies operating on the foreign markets, both financially and in terms of business opportunities.
