Weekly News:

  • This week’s articles are, “In About-Face on Trade, Trump Vows to Protect ZTE Jobs in China”, by Paul Mozu and Raymond Zhong, and “Trump pledges to help Chinese phone maker ZTE ‘get back into business’” by Tony Romm, Damian Paletta and Steven Mufson. These articles describe President Trump’s turn around regarding trade with China. The articles also cite statements by President Trump that say too many jobs in China have been lost. What are your thoughts on the articles? Do you think Trump should be instructing his Commerce Department to “get it done” and fix the loss of jobs from the Chinese company ZTE? Is Trump right to reach out to ZTE? What do you think the US’s policy with China and ZTE? Come discuss on our forums with other HP MUNC members.
  • If you would like to discuss a certain subject, submit an article here.

Thank you,
Your HP MUNC Officers
