NEW YORK -- Beijing responded positively to last week's speech in which U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai outlined President Joe Biden's new approach to trade with China, particularly taking note of a word she used in the Q&A session: "recoupling."

Tai also said the administration is not looking to "inflame trade tensions with China." The messaging -- that perhaps a quieter approach to discussing trade issues would be better -- has been received well by her Chinese counterparts.
