US-China trade friction becoming a concern

Nikkei-surveyed economists expect China to grow at 6.5% pace in 2018

HONG KONG -- Trade friction with the U.S. is starting to cast a shadow on China's economic outlook. In a Nikkei and Nikkei QUICK News survey of economists who specialize in China, the top answer regarding possible downward risk factors is a trade war between the two countries.

The survey was conducted between March 15 and 23, well after the Trump administration announced tariffs on steel and aluminum imports on March 8. Tension between the U.S. and China heated up when the U.S. also unveiled plans for tariffs targeting additional Chinese goods on March 22.
