US Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo spoke with CNN's Christiane Amanpour on November 9, 2023, ahead of high-stakes meetings between the United States and China. Raimondo dismissed the idea of a military conflict with China over Taiwan and emphasized the desire for a stable relationship. She acknowledged the competition with China but stated that the US wants competition rather than hostility. Raimondo highlighted the importance of direct talks and open dialogue to prevent a breakdown of diplomacy. She expressed concerns about China's anti-espionage act, lack of predictability, and raids on US businesses, but also stated the need for China to make changes. Raimondo also emphasized that matters of national security, particularly regarding semiconductor chips used for advanced weapons, cannot be negotiated. The Commerce Department recently implemented rules limiting the sale of semiconductors to China. Raimondo argued that there are other important aspects of the US-China economic relationship to discuss, considering the $700 billion trading relationship. President Biden is set to discuss economic considerations, military communication, the climate crisis, and narcotics trafficking with Chinese President Xi Jinping at a summit in the San Francisco Bay Area.
