There is no winner in a trade war. This is why China doesn't want to fight a trade war at all. The US and Chinese economies(经济) have become heavily interdependent(相互依赖的) on each other over the past 40 years. Trade friction(摩擦) and conflict(冲突) do exist and cannot be solved in a short time. Even if an agreement could be reached by March 1, trade friction is likely to still be there in coming decades(十年). China has to prepare for this, while at the same time preventing trade friction from disturbing China's reform and opening-up(开放).
