BEIJING (Reuters) – Trade tensions between the U.S. and China have caused huge amounts of economic uncertainty and could cut Asia’s economic growth by 0.5 percentage point, a senior International Monetary Fund official said on Tuesday.

Zhang Tao, deputy managing director at the IMF, made the comments at the Boao Forum.
