2013-10-29 Protectionism in its New Forms
    2013-10-28 18:02:18     CRIENGLISH.com         Web Editor: Chen Cong




Despite repeated calls by heads of government to fend off protectionism and ensure the free flow of global trade, companies with operations on foreign soil may find themselves in a new situation, where protectionism no longer manifests itself in terms of tariffs, but in subsidies, local content requirements and capital controls.

A chief editor from Economist Magazine even commented that policymakers have become choosier about whom they trade with, how much access they grant foreign investors and banks and what sort of capital they admit. Sadly, that is still part of picture; for Chinese companies, the biggest challenges facing their foreign operations might be the murky politics that threaten to shut them out of the local market. Chinese companies like Huawei and Sanyi have found the US market impenetrable, as the US federal government shut them out, citing national security concerns.

In what way are these new forms of protectionism affecting global trade? How can we deal with them?
