Even though the Chinese Communist Party was against the US’s idea of selling arms to Taiwan, Trump’s administration had approved billions of dollars. China claimed Taiwan’s democracy, and the communist party is waiting to retaliate. So far, Beijing’s response has not been much apart from the foreign ministry’s denunciations and revoking sanctions of US aerospace defense firms and subsidiaries. The analysts of the aerospace industry have reported that there is nothing much China can do to the US’s aerospace suppliers and manufacturers if the country wants to go ahead with the development of new domestically built airliners. This is mostly due to the fact that the majority of commercial airliners are dependent on the US for expertise.
If Beijing continues to ban US-made passenger flights from being sold in the country, it would not be easy to operate and manage the Chinese airline. This, in turn, will put China in a position where it has to deal with Europe’s Airbus, or it will be stuck with aircraft that are made to perform poorly from Russia or domestic sources. The breakup of Chinese and US aerospace industries will prove to be a nightmare for both countries. Experts are speculating that if the ongoing tussle between the US and China relationship extends to Aerospace, then there might be severe percussions for both the countries.
