While the Trump administration takes tough measures to limit Chinese state-run companies' access to U.S. technology and market, the European Union is in the final stages of signing a major investment pact with Beijing by the end of 2020.
Beijing wants a "reset" in U.S.-China relations when the "incoming" Democratic administration takes office, the Chinese foreign minister said.
China is the single biggest threat to the United States and the free world in our times, a leading U.S. intelligence official warned this week.

China is getting increasingly worried "as Japan bankrolls exodus of firms," the daily added.
