China, US should stand together: Kentucky governor
Thursday, December 27, 2018
The United States and China provide tremendous benefit to the world through our strong and productive economies. In fact, recent statistics show that our two countries together produce a combined 39.4 percent of the global GDP. Therefore, it is critical that we work together economically for the good of our countries and for the good of the world.
Currently, much of the global media attention is focused on the trade negotiations between our nations. They use sensational words and phrases such as "trade war" and "conflict". This is both inaccurate and unhelpful. When our two large and powerful economic engines interact, there will naturally be some points of disagreement. This is to be expected. I am very confident that, over time, these differences will be worked out. I believe there is a bright economic future ahead that will be mutually beneficial to both China and America.
