Aside from the other nefarious speculation, there is one great and grand agenda of the Chinese Government that they make no secret of:   to become the world's technology leader.

To further this, they force technology transfer (or just plain steal it). WIth all the nuances of trade negotiations aside, were I in talks with them, the stopping of this would be not only number on on my demand list but 100% non-negotiable. And since the government controls all aspects of their society, I'd make them pay for all product piracy - they could stop it in an instant if they cared to.

Now - part two - the actual trade negotiations - will have to do with market access and tit-for-tat on any requirements they have on forced Chinese ownership if one sets up a business/plant/etc. in China. Retroactive to their current holdings if they don't submit.

I'd make sure Japan, and other, take really good note of this market-opening, as well.
