Despite the challenges faced by China in recent years, there are still bright spots in its present and future. One such spot is renewable energy, which Chinese electric vehicles are projected to capture a quarter of European sales this year. Additionally, factory activity is rebounding, with analysts at Citi upgrading their prediction for the Chinese economy to 5% growth this year.

However, these positive developments may not be enough to prevent a concerning slowdown in China. The Communist Party’s mandate to rule has been called into question as concerns arise about China’s ability to escape the middle income trap. These concerns have led to a shift in China’s approach to external pressures, as evidenced by Xi Jinping’s visit to meet President Biden in San Francisco and a two-hour phone call between the two leaders.

During these interactions, Xi Jinping raised concerns about America’s sanctions that could hinder China’s progress in key sectors like semiconductors, artificial intelligence, and renewables. He also raised issues like America’s support for Taiwan and the potential divestment of TikTok from its parent company. In response, there appears to be a change in China’s tone, with a reduction in aggressive rhetoric from the wolf warriors and the removal of punitive trade barriers like the embargo on Australian wine. This shift towards cautiousness could represent a strategic move by China to ease external pressures on its economy.
