Economic, Cyber Espionage Issues May Dominate US-China Talks

Michael Pillsbury

Analysts say it would be difficult for cyber security to become a “bright spot” in Sino-U.S. relations – and for foreign investment in China to remain unchanged – if Beijing does not pull back on economic theft and espionage.

“If they’re proved to be engaging in really illegal, exploitative behavior and deception, they promised they are not, this affects a lot of companies’ investment decisions to invest in China,” said Michael Pillsbury, a senior fellow at The Hudson Institute. “It would probably affect our Congress.”
