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.
