U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s visit to China served as a reminder of the integral relationship that exists between the two countries. While the U.S. now says it merely seeks de-risking in its trade policies, it should be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

When Tony Blinken last visited Beijing in 2016, he was there together with a large, cross-departmental delegation attending a range of bilateral dialogues. Those were better days for China-U.S. relations.
