中美第一阶段贸易协议达成


近年来,中美两国之间的贸易争端使双边贸易往来存在诸多不确定性。双方互相施加关税,增加市场准入壁垒以及采取一系列报复性措施等行动,使得进出口商等直接利益相关人群对未来贸易趋势愈发难以预测,影响其商业决策。

幸运的是,中美双方新签署的贸易协议部分缓解了这种不确定性。2020年1月15日,美国和中国签署了第一阶段贸易协议。协议中要求中国在知识产权、技术转让、农业、金融服务、货币和外汇方面进行结构性改革。另外,中国还承诺在未来几年大量购买美国商品和服务,并设立一个名为“双边评估和争端解决办公室”的机构,来接收和评估对中美任一方未遵守其该协议条款的投诉。

白宫方面表示,原定对价值近1600亿美元的中国商品(包括手机,笔记本电脑,玩具和服装)加征15%关税的决议将不会生效;但此前对价值2500亿美元的中国商品加征25%关税的决定,在双方达成第二阶段贸易协议之前将一直有效。中国财政部副部长廖敏表示,作为该协议的结果,中方将取消原本打算对美国实行的报复性关税措施,包括对美国制造的汽车征收25%的关税。

如今中美贸易继续保持动态变化,双边贸易仍然存在很多不确定性。例如,双方是否能够全面实施已达成的第一阶段贸易协议,以及在总统选举年中双方能否就协议的第二阶段进行谈判,仍有待进一步观察。同时,未来进行交易的产品和服务是否属于第一阶段协议范围内,还是将继续受到关税提高的影响,目前还尚未清楚。此外,中国仍然是美国采取最多贸易救济措施的重点针对国家,包括商务部和国际贸易委员会的反倾销和反补贴税调查及贸易冲突裁定等。
