U.S.-China Trade Negotiations examines the issues concerning the U.S.-China trade negotiations by identifying the mechanics of the U.S.-China business negotiations, such as how a company prepares the negotiations, the contributing factors, the outcomes, and how U.S. companies organize for the China trade. The book provides information based on a survey of 138 U.S. firms that are in trade negotiations with the Chinese, such as import/export, joint ventures, coproduction, and processing. The text also covers the edited versions of interviews conducted with firms regarding how they prepared for negotiations, their experiences, and the outcomes of the negotiations. The selection will be of great interest to readers who are looking for an insight regarding the inner workings of the U.S.-China trade relations.
