President Trump Announces China Trade Review

President Trump announced this week his Administration will review whether or not to formally investigate intellectual property theft in China.

The announcement is a much more measured approach than had been reported leading up to the announcement as it does not include any specific sanctions or other measures to stifle trade with China. Nevertheless, it will factor into the overall U.S.-China relationship, currently dominated by the situation in North Korea, and ISRI will monitor closely whether or not antagonism between the United States and China could result in unintended consequences for the recycling industry (beyond the current trade threats from China’s scrap import restrictions).
