Zhang, Xiong author article for The Conversation

Assistant professor Wendong Zhang and visiting scholar Tao Xiong authored an article for The Conversation about the coronavirus outbreak and how it may impact the US-China trade deal. Zhang and Xiong assert that "The coronavirus has impacted China’s economic growth and will continue to do so. However, that likely won’t change the long-term trajectory of China’s growing appetite for global food. The need for economic recovery after coronavirus also means that we are unlikely to see the US-China trade war further escalate in 2020."
