TOKYO -- Much of the talk about the phase one trade deal between the U.S. and China has focused on trade and investment, but the interim agreement could also significantly impact the international flows of people, especially in Asia, where air traffic is growing fast.
The number of Chinese visiting the U.S. in 2019 is on track to fall for a second straight year. Washington is partly to blame. It has restricted the issuance of working visas to Chinese tech engineers. But the Chinese government may also have had a hand in the drop-off, warning tourists about dangers in America.
