As an experienced international civil servant with keen interest and knowledge of foreign affairs and law, Kamil Idris keeps a close view on what is happening across the globe. In the recent blog that he wrote on the subject of economics, Kamil Idris mentioned how the new US Government under US President Donald Trump had imposed substantial penalties on the Chinese imports. The increase in regulatory fees on the Chinese imports is going to hurt Chinese businesses massively, and there can be a backfire shortly. The US President Donald Trump has taken these measures against China because of the massive theft of the United State’s Intellectual Property by the Chinese businesses in the form of counterfeiting of famous American products, stealing US technologies, and compelling US businesses to share their trade and technology secrets with the Chinese businesses.
The new trade tariffs introduced by the US government would cost China heavily and is expected to be around $50 billion. Kamil Idris said that many of the US as well as other western businesses competing with the Chinese companies have often raised their voice and complained against the Chinese businesses’ illegal business practices. The US President Donald Trump had been talking about imposing heavy tariffs for the Chinese companies from before he was elected as the President and thus, it doesn’t come as a surprise that now he has implemented what has been in his agenda list for a long time.
