The decoupling of China and the US appears to be continuing. This decoupling commenced with a trade war, which had little to do with trade but now appears to be primarily in respect of technology. The technology decoupling is more complex than tariffs and quotas. Technology decoupling is multi-faceted. The most recent aspect of this struggle is to make it more difficult for Chinese centric tech companies to list on US capital markets. Interestingly in this regard both the US and China are establishing (very different and competing) hurdles for these companies.
