The American Chamber of Commerce in China said its members wanted the U.S. administration to advocate more strongly for a level playing field and reciprocal treatment to improve market access — despite concerns that the current actions could disrupt the global economy.

“That the U.S. is willing to risk these disruptions indicates how serious the U.S. Administration finds China’s forced technology transfer, cyber theft, and discriminatory industrial policies,” AmCham China Chairman William Zarit said in a statement. “We feel that focusing on reciprocal treatment while maintaining strong communications between the governments will be the best path forward to get to our goal of a level playing field based on fairness.”
