For the fiscal year of 2019, a total of $71.9 billion of total duties were collected by the CBP, surging sharply from $41.6 billion in 2018 and $34.6 billion in 2017, according to CBP.Lin said that Chinas market is very important to American companies, and China has repeatedly said it will open up further, while the US government expected that by imposing tariffs to force the US companies to move production back to America is very impractical. Given the huge consuming market, companies like Tesla has greater business opportunities in China, especially the government policy for new energy vehicles in place, Lin said.Trumps tariffs has left the US automakers in the impossible situation of either to find cheap and quality products in other countries, or to increase its cost of production, said Bai Ming, deputy director of the international market research institute at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation.”The US automakers are under increasing pressure from competitions from other countries,” Bai said, “Increase in prices will drastically drag down the US brands competiveness.””Business from other areas, including the technology sector, will also follow suit and file lawsuits against the Trump administration over tariffs,” Bai said. Posted in: MARKETSvar wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1201928;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes/biz_right.html”);load_file(“/includes/footer.html”);$(document).ready(function($){$(“#channel-list .row-content”).each(function(){  if($(this).children().length==1){$(this).children().css(width,100%);}
