XIAMEN, China — Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday warned that the world economy faces growing risks and uncertainties from countries turning inward on trade and resisting combating climate change, delivering an implicit rebuke to his American counterpart, Donald Trump.
Xi didn’t refer to the United States by name, although Trump has said trade pacts are a threat to American jobs and decided to pull the U.S. out of the Paris agreement on climate change.
“Multilateral trade negotiations are having a difficult time. The implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change is encountering resistance,” Xi told leaders of emerging economies and developing countries.
The agreement under which countries set their own national plans for cutting climate emissions went into effect in November.
“Some countries have become more inward-looking and less willing to take part in international co-operation, and the spillovers of their policy adjustments are deepening,” he said
