Engagement vs. Enforcement: How Can the United States and Germany Manage China’s Impact on the Global Economy?

With three trade and investment agreements in 2020 as background—the U.S. “Phase I” deal with China, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, and the EU-China Comprehensive Agreement on Investment—this session of the AGI-KAS Transatlantic Trade Week explores how the United States and Germany can strike a balance between economic interdependence and the use of trade enforcement tools with China to promote transatlantic prosperity while safeguarding values and security interests.
