The G20 showdown in Buenos Aires could end in concessions to avoid a ‘calamitous cold war’ over trade
Ladies and gentlemen! On my left, in the red corner, political heavyweight and president of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping. On my right, in the blue corner, president of the United States of America, Donald Trump. The venue: the G20 summit in Buenos Aires. The prize: Undisputed champion of the world!
OK. The analogy is a little fanciful. But depictions of the looming showdown between the leaders of the world’s two biggest economies as the “fight of the century” are not wholly wide of the mark. Much is riding on whether Xi and Trump will settle their differences – or plunge the planet into a new age of uncertainty and, some analysts warn, a new cold war.
