Coordinated stance called for on Chinese investment

Europe, US need to address rising discomfort with buyout deals

The election of Donald Trump has led to widespread speculation about what the U.S. president-elect wants to do with and about China. Will he impose high tariffs on Chinese imports if Beijing doesn't "behave," potentially triggering retaliation? Will he strike a deal with President Xi Jinping on freedom of navigation in the South China Sea? Will he reduce the American military presence in Asia or might he increase it?

There are many questions, but few answers. Trump's unexpected, taboo-breaking phone conversation with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen on Dec. 3 has led to even more speculation, as well as dismay, in Beijing which considers Taiwan a renegade province.
