China's trading partners see it as a technical issue that hampers the opening up of the China market.
Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars.
"We hope the United States will meet China halfway", said Geng.
"Somebody had to take on what China was doing to the United States economically".
President Donald Trump over the weekend warned against a crackdown in Hong Kong like Beijing's suppression of pro-democracy protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989, which would make reaching a deal he has been seeking to end a trade war with China "very hard".
Among the major demands by the U.S include reducing the trade surplus and halting China's government-sponsored development of new players in robotics and other advanced technologies. But the USA officials are more concerned that Chinese moves will erode the industrial leadership of America. Since Yang has had no problems getting visas for the other global fashion capitals - London, Paris and Milan - the team suspects that the bad blood between the U.S. and China could be to blame.

Negotiations are deadlocked over how to enforce a deal.
In March 2018, a Section 301 investigation, conducted by the U.S. Trade Representative's office, concluded that Beijing was engaging in state-sponsored intellectual property theft. The president said he was "put here by people to do a great job". Last month's meeting in Shanghai brought no results, and the date of next round of face-to-face talks has not been announced.
"The two negotiating teams have maintained communication", Gao said.
Gao repeated a Chinese threat of unspecified "corresponding countermeasures" if Trump's tariff hike goes ahead.
"It's about time, whether it's good for this country or bad for this country short term", he said. China's Ministry of Commerce Thursday urged the United States to correct its faulty practices in anti-subsidy probes against Chinese products after the World Trade Organization (WTO) recently again ruled that US countervailing measures were inconsistent with WTO rules.
In unusually blunt language, the blog post seemed targeted straight at President Trump, who has persistently demanded that the Federal Reserve cut interest rates to weaken the United States dollar and juice the economy, while imposing round after round of tariffs on China to reduce the deficit he describes as theft. He later postponed the tariff hike on about 60 percent of those goods to December 15.
