Made in China 2025 Initiative: Economic Implications for the United States [August 29, 2018] [open pdf - 342KB]
From the Document: "China's incomplete transition to a free market economy stands out as one of the biggest sources of trade friction with the United States. Recent proposals by the Chinese government, such as its 'Made in China 2025' (MIC 2025) initiative, appear to signal an expanded role by the government in the economy, which many fear could distort global markets and negatively affect U.S. firms. The Trump Administration has made MIC 2025 a major focus of its Section 301 actions (including increased tariffs) against China over its alleged distortive policies related to technology transfer, intellectual property, and innovation."
