Communication breakdown risks escalating Sino-US trade row, say former officials

January 23, 2018, South China Morning Post

Timothy Stratford is quoted in a South China Morning Post article regarding escalating trade tensions between the U.S. and China, and how the World Economic Forum in Davos might be a place for officials to discuss trade issues. "As far as we’ve been able to tell, there has been a strong debate going on at the most senior level in Washington on how to deal with China on trade issues," says Stratford. “One reason that there has not been a lot of communication between the two countries on these issues is that the administration is having a debate and working out what they should do. It is hard to communicate until they resolve that very difficult question."
