US accusations show it needs a reality check

Accusing China of "economic aggression", the Donald Trump administration has imposed additional tariffs on large percentage of Chinese imports and threatened to extend them to cover almost every product China exports to the United States. To justify its actions, the Trump administration also accuses China of having used aggressive economic policies to become the world's second-largest economy, which again is totally baseless.

China's development is not a threat to the world, as the US claims. Instead, thanks to its economic development, China has been making greater contributions to global growth and economic recovery.

China has always been a follower, protector and maker of international rules. It has abided by all World Trade Organization rules after joining the world trade body in 2001. It has also signed 16 free trade agreements and become a member of many international and regional organizations, including the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and the Group of 20.
