Chinese and South Korean business leaders are much more optimistic than their Japanese counterparts about the prospect for better US-China relations under the incoming administration of Joe Biden, according to a recent survey by leading newspapers in the three East Asian countries.

More than 57 per cent of executives from China and 51 per cent from South Korea said the bilateral relationship would improve or greatly improve after Biden takes office next Wednesday. However, only 25 per cent of their Japanese peers said the same.

The survey of 290 top executives, roughly 100 each from China, Japan and South Korea, was conducted by China’s Global Times, Japan’s Nikkei and South Korea’s Maeil Business News Korea from December 7 to 22 last year.
