Industrial Watch: January 18, 2020

“Phase one of the U.S. and China trade deal is done. Over the next two years, $200 billion worth of U.S. farm products, manufactured goods, business services, and oil and natural gas purchases by China are scheduled. The questions remain if China can absorb that much and if the U.S. can deliver. In addition, intellectual property rules will be strengthened and the U.S. will reduce tariffs on $120 billion Chinese products (15% to 7.5%). However, some remind us how the trade war has affected the global economy and that many uncertainties still remain. While there is a ‘phase two’ of the deal in the future, analysts don’t see it happening any time soon.” -Adam Abushagur
