US-China relations have been heading south throughout 2021 | DW News

Relations between the world’s biggest economies, US and China, have been heading south throughout 2021. Just recently they’ve taken a further dive over claims of human rights abuses in the Chinese region of Xinjiang.

The United States recently passed tough new legislation that puts the onus on businesses to prove their supply chains are free of forced labor.

It accuses China of persecuting Xinjiang’s Muslim-minority Uyghur population through internment-camps, forced-labor programs and intense surveillance. More than a million Uyghurs are believed to have been detained. However, for firms trying to pull out of the region, things can get tricky.

US chipmaker Intel issued an apology last week after urging its suppliers to avoid sourcing goods from Xinjiang. The announcement had caused an uproar in China.

Meanwhile — the upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing are putting pressure on businesses from another angle: Western human rights groups have criticized the American firms sponsoring events. These include the likes of AirBnB, Coca-Cola and General Electric.

Biden, Xi hold virtual summit amid high US-China tensions | DW News

The leaders of US and China stressed their shared responsibility to avoid conflict in their first-ever virtual summit. US president Joe Biden and Chinese president Xi Jinping held the video call at a time of worsening relations between the superpowers. There’s no shortage of tension over issues like Taiwan and human rights, flashpoints in a rivalry that dominates the global stage.
As three hours of virtual meetings wrapped up, the leaders of the US and China could agree on one thing: the need to get out of each other’s way. The two nations stressed the need for their competition to remain peaceful.
Chinese President Xi Jinping says cooperation benefits not only the US and China, but also the world.
It was a public attempt at lowering the temperatures between the two superpowers amid rising tensions. But in private, disagreements were raised in the meeting. Policy towards Taiwan continued to separate the two, with Xi saying any US interference is like ‘playing with fire.’
Beijing claims that the self-governing island is part of China, while the US has vowed to protect Taiwanese independence.
Biden raised China’s human rights record in Hong Kong, Tibet and Xinjiang. He also expressed concern at China’s build-up of nuclear weapons.
But China was quick to point out that its stockpile is much smaller than the one in the United States.
No agreements or announcements are expected to come from this summit, but the two leaders welcomed the opportunity for frank conversation.

US-China trade talks: What’s Biden’s reviewed US trade strategy? | DW News

China’s Vice Premier Liu He held a call with US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen Tuesday to discuss trade issues and forge a new path after the end of the Donald Trump era. Liu expressed concerns about US tariffs and sanctions that after Trump had imposed tariffs on Chinese products worth billions of dollars in 2018. US President Joe Biden has launched a review of the US tariffs and trade strategy, but his administration also says that China’s massive state subsidies for national companies, intellectual property theft and other factors create a heavily uneven playing field in trade.
