China craves invitation to join global trade club

“To understand the geopolitics of trade these days just look at the contrasting visits by Barack Obama and Xi Jinping to Europe over the past fortnight.”

“The US and Chinese presidents both arrived in Europe pitching trade as the centrepiece of their trips. The two leaders took very different approaches, however.”

“Mr Obama’s relatively austere four-day visit took in the Netherlands, Brussels and Rome and included a nuclear summit. It was more about working lunches than wooing a Europe that often feels taken for granted by Washington.”
