The United States, she said, should start by setting up stronger guardrails to prevent China from exploiting America’s economic openness and punish it for its predatory actions.
“It involves pushing back against Beijing’s manipulation of international forums like the World Trade Organization. It means ensuring that our most important security-related industries — from essential medicine to semiconductors — have American-friendly supply chains, instead of depending on an authoritarian rival state,” she wrote.
Americans, she wrote, have always understood that national security is the foundation of economic security. “As we strive to come through the coronavirus crisis stronger and safer, we must courageously and creatively act to protect our people from Chinese communist duplicity and aggression,’ she added.
