USA vs China: closer relations?

– Podcast Episode 15 Minutes analyzes the repercussion of Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan and the intensification of tension between China and the United States

*) The visit of the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, to Taiwan continues to yield.

The episode heightened tensions between the two largest economies in the world. This relationship, by the way, was already deteriorated by trade issues, by China’s refusal to condemn Russia for the invasion of Ukraine and, of course, by the very situation of Taiwan.

Relationship between China and Taiwan

In addition to geopolitical issues, there are commercial aspects involved. For example, China blocked Taiwanese citrus fruit and fish imports in retaliation for Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the island.

However, the Chinese avoided stopping technology imports and manufacturing, highlights of Taiwanese production. Processor chips made in Taiwan are needed by Chinese factories that assemble smartphones and other electronics.
