Enforcement is a 'Tough Issue' in U.S.-China Trade Deal

Wendy Cutler on CNBC Asia

As China and the U.S. begin to make progress towards a trade deal, ASPI Vice President Wendy Cutler spoke to CNBC about what she expects after the conclusion of U.S.-China negotiations. Speaking about the difficulty of enforcing a deal, Cutler notes that “it’s easy to make commitments and write them down on paper, it’s another thing to make sure that the commitments are actually implemented over time.”

After this deal is concluded, Cutler expects that the administration will turn its attention to Europe and Japan, and states that if these countries “aren’t moving in line with the President’s expectations…they should get ready for some tough rhetoric and possibly some tough actions.”
