|제목||[해외 보고서] Heritage Foundation: Biden Administration Should Say No to New Trade Deals With China|
April 6, 2021
In her first media interview since being confirmed United States trade representative, Katherine Tai said last week she is in no rush to lift tariffs associated with the Trump administration’s U.S.-China Phase One trade deal. She should reconsider.
Tai’s stated reasoning for maintaining the tariffs is that they provide useful negotiating leverage. Which is kind of like holding a gun to your own head and threatening to shoot unless you’re given what you want.
But OK, think of it as leverage. The only legitimate thing to negotiate would be new access to the Chinese market. And given all that is going on today with China, now would be the absolutely wrong time to do that.
