NPR's Marketplace interviews Chinese exporters about the Trump China tariffs:
most manufacturers in China who export to the U.S. have said it is very difficult to find a substitute for the American market...Many Chinese manufacturers have said they like dealing with the U.S. because no one buys more than Americans. Plus, U.S. clients pay on time compared to Chinese firms.
Some Chinese businesses are willing to do a lot to keep selling to the U.S.
"If the American government doesn't decrease tariffs on our products, we might consider moving our factories outside of China," Claudio Zhou, sales manager for a metal and plastic parts manufacturer called Xmake.
Sounds like the U.S. has a pretty strong negotiating position here. If these factories do get moved out of China, it'll be interesting to see where they go, and if any of them come to the U.S.
