CHINA has as much to fear from a Biden as a Trump administration, says Yossi Sheffi, director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Centre for Transportation & Logistics.

'Anti-China sentiment might be the only thing Democrats and Republicans have in common. China may have reason to fear a Biden administration more than the return of their Republican antagonist,' said Mr Sheffi, writing in the Wall Street Journal.



'It is easy to expect a Joe Biden victory to pave the way for more stability and perhaps even normalised relations between the two trade giants.



'China, after all, has learned how to manage the Trump administration's trade policies. However, a more thoughtful approach from a President Biden could involve the creation of a coalition involving the US, the European Union, Japan and other large trading blocs.



'Instead of going it alone - the Achilles heel of the Trump interventions - Mr Biden could wield the combined buying power of these allies to pressure China into making meaningful changes in sensitive areas such as international property theft,' Mr Sheffi said.
