How China Is A Loser In The US-China Trade War

  • Published on Mar 8, 2019
  • Understand The US China Trade War
    US President Donald Trump has imposed tariffs on billions of dollars of goods from China, and is threatening more. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicts the trade war could shave nearly 2 per cent off China’s GDP growth over the next 2 years. Its small and medium-sized manufacturing companies are feeling the pressure.
    “I expect we will lose about 25-30% of our orders,” said Danny Lau Tat Pong, managing director of Kam Pin Industrial HK Ltd.
    Trump’s tariffs have accelerated the process of businesses moving out of China. Stanley Szeto, executive chairman of the Hong Kong Textile Council, said tariffs have not yet been imposed on apparel products, but 99 per cent of its buyers are American and they are concerned.
    “The main thing we have understood from this trade war is that there are no winners. There’s only varying degrees of losers,” said Peter J Levesque, CEO of Modern Terminals.

    Consumers will pay the tariffs if they dont find similar products made outside China..So a T.V costing $400. now cost $500. from China..But a T.V. made in Singapore still costs $400. manufacturers will move as sales drop..We have a choice ..Buying from China funds their military. Complete ban on Chinese imports would help the most..

    If you believe China was still growing at 6.8 % your a moron. The American people are willing to pay higher prices, because we are sick of China's arrogance. Most Americans want to see China on its knees and they will be thanks to Trump. Its for China's own good. They have been getting uppity and we have to remind them of their place.

    Until an American, Indian, Vietnamese, Mexican producer supplants the Chinese producer.(white elephant in the room boys and girls)
    Either the Chinese play ball fairly with COMPLETE clarity or in the medium term (2.5 to 5 years) MANY of the Chinese supply chains will be gone permanently from China. In the long term (5 to 10 years) they will be ALL be gone from China if they do not play ball fairly. Chinese production is the their life blood..... they are in danger of bleeding to death

    I live in China, I see everyday many factories closing down and laying off workers, supply chains moving to India, Vietnam and Thailand but a few. Then let us look on the street, shops who once were so busy due to the boom are closing on every high street and street corner, even restaurants! No one tells you this and its real hard facts. Chinese coastal factories have reduced by 40% to date [August 2019] and its getting worse, people are so worried here. In Luoyang Henan 210 factories have now closed. The boom brought DEBT investors, two homes, one as an investment can no longer sell; over stock of building literally millions of empty homes, the debt is astronomical at 240 GDP!! Our 2 factories are going through the move to Vietnam and will complete by October this year, we too will lay off our expensive workers; a lot of discontent here. As for making products here, sending to Vietnam to relabel made in Vietnam, most people don't understand the cost of this logistical move; also when you export, official shipping documents are composed, once that is done, the US and other agencies can track that shipment, compare to company financials and already many Chinese companies have been caught by US officials and banned from importing into the USA as punishment. Vietnam has been warned to end this practice. Lots of Chinese people [who are great] are now suffering from China's system of not complying to the basic WTO rules.

    • David Lee

      What a joke! What factories are closing down when exports to the US are continuing. There is no ban importing Chinese products. Its only tariff the US is collecting upon off loading from ships that the consignees pay.

    In Vietnam we are loving this, we are eating China's lunch and getting access to American markets
    which the Chinese had which we couldn't access previously. Exports to America have doubled in the past 5 months.
    Unemployment in Vietnam is now the lowest ever recorded. The downside is most of the country is having
    to work more hours a week than is wanted.

  • Daniel Marces
    Daniel Marces 4 months ago

    US is the buyer, China is the seller. The buyer will always have the upperhand. Why? 1) The buyer can always pay someone else to make the products. 2) the maker of the products are US companies that are only in China to save on labor and regulation costs. The tariffs take that savings away so China knows its competitor is not so much the US as it other countries that would gladly manufacter goods and deliver services for those US companies without the same tarrifs.

    *_The truth is China does not really care or give a shit._*_ It is prepared to lose the entire US trade altogether. So USA problems are all self inflicted e.g. Ford just announced that they have retrench 12,000 auto workers, 7200 retail stores in USA had shut down._
    _Statistics has shown that all the tariffs by USA has affected China GDP very slightly._
    _May 2019 exports went up while exports to USA is down._
    _No one at Huawei has lost their job or got terminated. In fact they have signed 5G contracts with 50 nations, Singapore not included and delivered 150,000 5G stations._
    *_So STOP the bullshit or speculation how USA won the trade war._*
    *China attitude is typical Chinese or Asian. If USA wants to trade then let trade. If USA complain too much then let stop trading.*

      The Mythbuster: Look at this fool and lunatic of the 21 century talking. Check exports from China to USA and tell me that they have increased? USA has every right to complain and you greedy fools don’t want them to talk. How do you expect USA companies to give their production plans to the Chinese government before they can sell in China and after 2 years, a Chinese company will surface selling similar products and technologies at lower prices since they benefit from government subsidies and you fool is here saying that USA should not complain. Are you mad or you are one of them, who are behind stealing of USA companies intellectual properties. This time, you people failed and USA will deal with you. Where is the Huawei operating system that faster than android? Foolish people who are specialists in in stealing.

    china is clear winner as they are mostly manufacturer and usa is consumer. most of giant us companies are producers of product not the original manufacturer. if there are some shortage of orders in some manufacturing factories china will find new markets as there are lots of growing economies in the world. but those tariffs imposed by trump mostly have to paid by americans. consequences are 1. lower savings which itself has lots of several consequences like impact on real estate. 2. most of us companies loose business due to lower demand because of higher price. 3. loss of jobs..

    • peter williams
      peter williams 2 months ago

      Sam Chiew: How is USA wrong here, this trade war is correct. For USA companies to sell in China, you have to give your production plan to the government and you will still pay taxes. The Chinese government will then take your production plan and give it to a Chinese company and in less than 2 years, you will see a Chinese company producing the same thing you are producing. Since the Chinese companies benefit from government subsidies, they will sell at a low price and the USA companies will have no choice than to leave China. What China is doing is wrong and stop blaming USA, China is stealing intellectual properties of USA companies and you think that’s right?
