But far more is involved.
Recall that the growth rate of China's economy in the third quarter of this year fell to the lowest since 2009, increased 6.5%. This means it must press ahead with technological and industrial development, a course that has now brought about a direct collision with the US.
Cui, who has served as China's representative to the U.S. since 2013, told NPR (National Public Radio) in the United States earlier this month that resolution of the trade war was being thwarted by the ever-changing position of USA negotiators.
