Article entitled "We Resolutely Oppose Unilateralism and Trade Protectionism", published on 17 June 2019 by the People’s Daily (in Chinese language), brought opinions from around the world on the topic of “trade war” between China and the United States, and also included an interview on the topic with the President of CSEBA, Mr. Mario Rendulić.
Looking on current negative development of situation between the world’s two biggest economies, and unwillingness of the US Government to proceed with the trade negotiations with China, Rendulić expressed hope that the official discussions will be reinstated, taking into account the responsibility that the two biggest economies have in the economic shaping of the World.
“The United States need to abandon the “Cold War” thinking over the situation, and start to actively look for solutions to current economic and trade problems. Nationalism and unilateral protectionist measures don’t serve good to anyone, including to the side that brings these measures to life. Present development influences not only these two top economies, but also Europe and other parts of the World, both in sense of supply chains and consumer demand.”
This published interview in China’s most influential daily media is another sign of CSEBA’s significance, recognition and appreciation within China’s business and political world. It is a result of continuous work and cooperation with the Chinese Government, government institutions, private enterprises and business chambers like the Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce (SRCIC) that supports international business activities between the Silk Road countries.
