Research of Sino-US trade friction based on the perspective of Coopetition Theory
Zhang Jianqing;Chen Guo;
The coexistence of competition and cooperation has always been the normalcy in Sino-US relations. Since 2017,the sharp escalation of Sino-US trade friction has broken the previous coopetition state of the two sides. Sino-US economic and trade cooperation is suffering a big impact,which has been regarded as the "ballast stone" of Sino-US relations for a long time,Sino-US competition is intensifying,China and the United States have entered a new stage of coopetition. Based on the theory of coopetition,this paper draws the following conclusions: that the fundamental reason for the change in Sino-US trade friction and Sino-US coopetition relations lies in the conflicts of interest between the status quo power and the rising power,and the great changes in the strength and role of both parties. Even if Sino-US trade frictions come to an end,the intensification of SinoUS competition in the future is also a long-term and inevitable trend. Whether in the high-level political fields such as military and security,or in the low-level political fields such as economy,trade,science and technology,both sides will carry out more competition. In the high-level political fields such as security,it is still in the low-level political fields such as economy,trade,science and technology. At the same time,in the field such as Sino-US bilateral trade and international public goods,the two sides still have the need for cooperation. In terms of coping strategies,China not only needs to strengthen Sino-US cooperation,control differences,but also needs to defend core interests and improve its core competitiveness.
