Although the Chinese economy is experiencing a recent slowdown, the U.S. desire to fully tap an opening of trade with China has not lessened; recently, the U.S. has built up the pressure on China to open up its economy to a greater degree by engaging in talks with other Asian nations for a potential Trans-Pacific Partnership. As noted by The Washington Post:

If U.S. ambitions are met, the pact will unite large portions of Asia, North America and South America in a trading bloc of lowered tariffs and common rules - a tidal pull that the Chinese could find hard to resist.
