Relations between the US and China have been volatile over the last few years due to factors such as the trade war and U.S. sanctions against Chinese companies. The Trump administration has added about 80 companies and affiliates to a trade blacklist, which includes 60 Chinese companies. Reuters reported that while the list did not initially trigger any penalties, a recent executive order by Donald Trump will prevent U.S. investors from buying the firms' securities from late next year.
With the impending arrival of a new president, there is anticipation that a more predictable and measured foreign policy may lead to better business cooperation. It is expected that a greater emphasis will be placed on adopting a multilateral approach instead of the hard lined approach taken during the Trump administration.
