ZTE Settlement: One Hit for the US, but More Battlegrounds Ahead?

Why did ZTE settle after its initial announcements to be in a state of shock and that the denial order caused major operating activities to cease? Perhaps it is as simple as China’s desire that it does not want an escalation of bilateral trade friction.

China-Japan Relations: Warm in Politics and Cold in Economics

Japan’s investment in China and bilateral trade have suffered setbacks in recent years. Unlike the slowing down of economic relations, the new geopolitical situation has encouraged the leaders from the two countries to seek more intimate diplomatic ties.

Trump-Kim Summit: Singapore as Inspiration for the North Korean Economy?
