Expected economical decline following US-China trade spat

Most of the stock markets have closed in the region of Southeast Asia since the quarrel between China and U.S regarding trade, also affecting Malaysia and the Philippines.

They imposed new taxes upon each other’s exports and imports while they are both known to be one of the largest economies. This series of events happened over the weekend. The world will go through a period of economic decline if these things continue to happen.

According to the President of the United States of America, Chinese officials and the U.S are planning to schedule a meeting to resolve this disagreement and negotiate but have been in vain to decide on a suitable time.
