L’interscambio Cina – US ammontava nel 2018 a 737.1 miliardi Usd. Il deficit commerciale per i beni ammontava a 419.2 miliardi Usd. Le importazione americane dalla Cina costituivano il 21.2% delle importazioni totali.

È semplicemente evidente come un deficit di simile livello sia intollerabile anche solo nel breve – medio periodo.

Altrettanto evidente dovrebbe essere come un caso così singolare non possa essere affrontato e risolto nell’ambito di trattative pluripolari, ma richieda una trattativa a due.

Ma altrettanto evidente appare il fatto che la Cina faccia di tutto per mantenere il proprio export, mentre gli Usa facciano il loro possibile per ridurlo e contenerlo. Si prospetta quindi un contenzioso duro e duraturo nel tempo.


Ansa. 2019-09-08. Dazi, crolla il commercio tra Usa e Cina

PECHINO, 8 SET – Il commercio della Cina con gli Usa crolla bruscamente mentre non si vedono segnali per la fine della guerra dei dazi. L’import di merci statunitensi è diminuito del 22% in agosto rispetto all’anno precedente, a quota 10,3 miliardi di dollari, dopo gli aumenti dei dazi cinesi e l’ingiunzione alle aziende di annullare gli ordini. L’export verso gli Usa, il più grande mercato cinese, sono affondate del 16% a 44,4 miliardi di dollari, per i dazi punitivi imposti dal presidente Donald Trump.
