IPC Releases Statement on New Tariffs on Chinese Goods


Reading time ( words)

Chris Mitchell, IPC Vice President for Global Government Relations, has released the following statement in line with the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative’s announcement that it will begin formal procedures to impose a fourth round of tariffs against China.

"In the last week, the U.S. and China have followed through on threats to raise tariffs on more imports from one another’s countries. These tariffs are affecting the global electronics supply chain, increasing costs and uncertainties for companies seeking to remain competitive in the global marketplace. New trade barriers will harm both countries. We urge U.S. and Chinese officials to accelerate negotiations and finalize an agreement that addresses long-standing disagreements, including intellectual property and market access."
