With tariffs and other measures on the table, according to US president Donald Trump, it seems the world should be bracing for another trade war similar to the crisis of the 1930s.

However, the situation is more complex and fluid than it might appear.

For insight from the Chinese side, he speaks to Dr Wallace Cheng of International Centre for Trade and Development China. The European point of view is provided by Taina Sateri, Trade Counsellor, European Delegation in Abu Dhabi.
