Will Obama 2.0 get tougher with China?

(People's Daily Online)

15:05, November 13, 2012

Although both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney made China-bashing shows in election campaigns, the delivered signal is not so optimistic.

Judging from Romney's radical speeches, many Americans agree to take strong measures against China. Obama will probably make a big fuss on exchange rate issue in his second term of office.

Currently, the primary tasks of the Obama administration are to improve employment and maintain competitive advantage.

The former will impact China' textile and steel industries, which are the competitors of U.S. sunset industry, while the latter will put pressure on China's emerging industries, which can be seen from the suppression of Obama administration on China's Huawei, ZTE and Sany Group.

The U.S. strategy of returning to Asia-Pacific region will also deteriorate the surrounding situation of China during Obama's second term.

Obama will be most likely to take a hardline foreign policy to three countries: Containing China by returning to Asia-Pacific region, preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons and promoting regime change in Syria. Obama will deepen the strategy of returning to the Asia-Pacific, which may increase the uncertainty of geopolitics in the region.
