Dominic's Take: Striking the Right Balance in the US-China Relationship

Dominic’s latest opinion piece has been published in the South China Morning Post. Dominic lays out a clear case for striking the right balance between economic growth and security in the U.S.-China relationship. He posits that keeping U.S. doors open to Chinese imports and investment does not need to compromise national security. The U.S. must recognize the benefits to American workers from trade and investment with China and understand that the bulk of U.S.-China economic engagement is irrelevant to national security concerns. Even in the few sectors where there may be potential risks, Washington has the tools to mitigate them.
