On China-US "Trade War"

  On March 23, U.S. President Trump signed a memorandum, announcing that it imposed tariffs on Chinese imports worth US$60 billion and restricted Chinese companies from investing in the United States.
  This time, the United States has imposed tariff-prohibited goods on China and locked in the "China Made 2025" top ten high-tech industries including the new generation of information technology, aerospace equipment and industrial robots. After Trump announced the increase of tariffs, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce immediately counterattacked, intending to impose a tariff of 15%-25% on imports of fresh fruits, dried fruits, wine, and pork from the United States for about US$3 billion.
  The "trade war" between China and the United States began to stir, and one stone stirred up waves. As people worries about the eruption of a "trade war" between China and the United States, Wall Street suffered the worst week since January 2016. The three major stock indexes fell across the board, and instrument and listed companies were also affected.
  After the "trade war" between China and the United States began, the stock prices of US listed companies such as Thermo Fishery, Agilent, and Waters plummeted. Domestic listed companies, such as Concentration Technologies, Hanwei Technologies, and Xianhe Environmental Protection, also began to experience major price declines.
  From the first batch of Sino-U.S. trade wars, it can be seen that the United States is targeting high-tech industries, while China is targeting low-tech industries such as agricultural products. Some high-tech industries and products have not been included in the “trade warfare” list for the United States because some high-tech products have originally restricted exports to China; there are also some high-tech products that the United States has managed to loosen and China has won. of. These advanced surgical products are not easy to obtain and are not included in the list.
  However, the United States does not have core technology for China’s export products related to the relevant industries. Why is the United States still fighting a single blow? Because the fundamental purpose of the US "trade war" with China is to prevent China's industrial upgrading and technological progress, and continue to maintain the global leadership of the United States high-tech industry.

  At present, China has become the world's second largest manufacturer of instrumentation. From January to December of 2017, China's instrumentation industry has completed a total export delivery value of 134.774 billion yuan. Instrumentation products have been exported to many countries in Europe and America. Moreover, instrument and meter companies have also grown, and they have "seabed" mergers and acquisitions of foreign instrumentation companies.
  In addition, during the Sino-US "trade war", the U.S. government will impose restrictions on technology transfer to China and the acquisition of U.S. companies by Chinese companies based on the results of the "301 investigation." In 2017, the number of overseas mergers and acquisitions by China's instrument and instrument companies decreased. The Trump administration may intensify this situation, and the pace of “going out” for domestic equipment and instruments companies will slow again.
  In addition, in recent years, foreign instrument and meter companies have been optimistic about the Chinese market and stepped up their strategic investment in China. The performance of the Chinese instrumentation industry has also grown faster than that of the United States and other developed markets. This time, the United States launched a "trade war" against China, which will limit the investment of foreign instrumentation companies in China, reduce technology transfer, and further hinder the development of China's instrumentation industry.
  The Sino-US "trade war" has just begun. If China countermeasures are upgraded, most industries will be affected. Instrument and instrument companies can only reduce their influence in this “trade war” only by continuously strengthening technological innovation and import substitution.
  The trade war between China and the United States broke out in an all-out way. Both countries will increase tariffs, which will have a significant impact on the U.S. GDP trend, consumption levels, investment, and government revenue. Although the instrumentation industry under the trade protection war is now divided, there is one thing that can be confirmed is that opposition to trade protection is in the fundamental interests of the world.
