Lovely weighs in on US-China trade deal targets, tensions on NPR

Lovely,-MaryProfessor Mary Lovely says targets for exports of farm goods, factory products, and crude oil were always going to be a stretch. And the coronavirus pandemic has made things worse. "The world has changed," Lovely says. "And clearly, China's purchases are going to be affected. One, because their demand collapsed; secondly, because American supply collapsed. So you had sort of a double whammy on their reaching these purchase targets." Lovely was interviewed by NPR for the segment titled "U.S.-China Tensions Were Already High. Pandemic And Hong Kong Have Made Things Worse." 05/28/20
