Zhang: Biden likely to keep China tariffs in place

January 14, 2021

Dr. Wendong ZhangWendong Zhang, assistant professor, was interviewed for a Jan. 14  Brownfield Ag News story, "Economist predicts US-China trade outlook under new administration."

“I want to lower your expectations on potential tariff rollbacks…that will likely be less important than rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines, thinking about how to re-jumpstart the global economy, and even the Paris Accord for climate change probably becomes more important issues than thinking about trade policies,” he says. “The phase one deal renegotiation could take a lot of time, and probably won’t necessarily happen over the next year.”
