Ford Rules Out Making Focus Active Wagon In The U.S.

Despite tariffs hitting the Chinese economy, exports to the U.S. are still showing relative resilience and that will be something that will continue to draw the ire of Trump in this whole dispute.

"[Ford can make Focuses] in many other plants around the world, so if they made a decision to continue to sell a Focus variant in the U.S. market, there are several options other than building it in the United States".

Mr Trump last Friday threatened duties on another US$267 billion (S$368 billion) of goods on top of US$200 billion in imports primed for levies in coming days. "The impact on exports may gradually start to show up, with future export growth possibly declining", said Liu Xuezhi, an analyst with Bank of Communications.

It asked the government to come up with other measures to bolster the economy. Computer and phone makers are involved in a global supply chain that includes Chinese manufacturing, and that can't be easily excluded without harm to USA companies, Intel said in a letter to the trade representative. "We are puzzled as to why the Administration may be using tariffs in part to re-engineer global ICT (information, communication and technology) supply chains that have served USA companies so well".

Mohan also predicted that Apple would need to raise prices by 8 percent if it shifted 10 percent of its manufacturing to the USA - which he called the "most likely" scenario.
