China looks set to call US bluff over hard-line trade stance

Hanging over trade relations are several inquiries into whether steel and aluminum imports - including those from China - are harming US national security, possible tariffs on imported solar panels, as well as an investigation into potential Chinese abuse of intellectual property.
