"Stop being suspicious about China," says Ambassador to the UK

The Chinese Ambassador to the UK has called upon the global community to “stop being suspicious about China,” in order to improve global trade relations and avert a trade war. Speaking at Asia House, His Excellency Liu Xiaoming said that China’s economic rise was providing a “huge boost” to emerging economies where it is investing, but that hostility towards Beijing risks “hampering sustained growth” in these markets. Speaking on the US-China trade gap, the Ambassador said that China “would like to buy more from the US,” but questioned whether Washington is a willing exporter to Beijing.
