Analysts are focused on what Joe Biden’s election victory will mean for China’s economy and markets after relations with the US plummeted under President Donald Trump.

“We expect a Biden administration to adopt a more predictable and multilateral economic and financial China strategy,” said Shaun Roache, Asia-Pacific chief economist at S&P Global Ratings. However, “the core economic issues at the heart of the tension, especially market access and industrial policies, are likely to remain intractable.”
