U.S. tech group urges global action against Chinese "mercantilism"

March 16, 2017

A U.S. technology group said in a report on Thursday that China's mercantilist industrial policies were a risk to the global economy and trading system, and called for international pressure on China to force a policy "reset". The report coincided with the release of a separate paper by an influential U.S. business chamber criticizing Beijing's "Made in China 2025" plan, which aims to dramatically increase domestically made products in 10 sectors, from robotics to biopharmaceuticals.
