U.S. Slaps Import Duties of More Than 400% on Vietnam Steel

Quote:

(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Commerce Department imposed duties of more than 400% on steel imports from Vietnam, accusing some businesses of shipping products from the Southeast Asian nation to evade the levies in a further escalation of tension between the two trading partners.

In three preliminary circumvention rulings on Vietnamese steel, the Commerce Department said certain products produced in South Korea and Taiwan were shipped to Vietnam for minor processing before being exported to U.S. as corrosion-resistant steel products and cold-rolled steel. Customs officials have been ordered to collect cash deposits at rates as high as 456.23% on imports of the steel products produced in Vietnam using material from South Korea and Taiwan.
Vietnam’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
It’s not surprising companies will try to route products through countries such as Vietnam to dodge higher duties, said Robert Carnell, Asia Pacific chief economist at ING Bank.
“It’s a no-brainer,” he said. “You increase the cost and people are going to try and find a way to avoid it. It’s human nature.”
In another case, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is investigating six American companies for allegedly evading anti-dumping duties while importing and misclassifying Chinese-made carbon steel pipe fittings through Cambodia, according to the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh.
The U.S. is hardening its rhetoric against Vietnam, one of its major trading partners and an economy that’s benefiting from President Donald Trump’s trade war with China. Trump described Vietnam last week as “almost the single-worst abuser of everybody” when asked if he wanted to impose tariffs on the nation.
Vietnam says it’s working to reduce its trade surplus with the U.S., and is already cracking down on Chinese manufacturers who are rerouting their goods via the Southeast Asian nation for export to the U.S. in order to bypass higher tariffs.
The U.S. Embassy in Hanoi said this week it’s in talks with authorities and hopes “Vietnam takes steps in the near term to address our concerns in a constructive manner.”
Vietnam’s annual trade surplus with the U.S. has exceeded $20 billion since 2014 and reached $39.5 billion last year, the highest in records going back to 1990, according to U.S. Census Bureau data.

What do you expect? When US producers must pay more for the imported materials they use in the manufacturing process, they have to either cut wages or increase prices.

If consumers must pay more for their imported clothes, then they can't afford wage cuts. So no choice but to raise the price of the product and so become too expensive on world markets.

Unfortunately Canada coyldn't resist but shoot itself in the foot too.

Had Canada been smart, it would have imposed export tariffs on products the US needed.

Didn't Canada raise tariffs against the US too? Trump was just more foolish than we were.

No, brain dead dictatoes throwing away our money and destroying our country which we paid for, make us angry...

...and of course, their stunned genocidal racist nazicommieglobalist baby killing stooges also deserve some caustic vitriol too.

"BUDGETS BALANCE THEMSELVES" is by far the STUPIDEST THING EVER SAID IN THE WHOLE HISTORY OF THE PLANET EARTH.

U.S. launches probe of French plans to tax tech giants, a potential step to retaliation and a new transatlantic trade rift


The United States will investigate France for possible unfair trade practices under Section 301 of the Trade Act, over its initiative to slap new taxes on Google, Facebook, Amazon and other tech companies.

The French measure, which is close to final approval, would levy a 3 percent tax on certain tech-industry revenue earned inside France. Other countries are considering similar taxes on big tech companies.

France formally adopts controversial tax on U.S. tech giants. The Trump administration has said it will investigate the tax.


The measure would levy a 3 percent tax on certain revenue that major tech companies earn in France. The Trump administration has announced a probe into whether the tax unfairly discriminates against U.S. businesses.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...economy&wpmk=1


the US bully continues to act out .....wanting to control every country now. Going well beyond meddling now.

Just like Hitlers actions were a defining moment in history..........we just might be seeing a TRump version of another defining moment. Both had and have major psychiatric problems.

.........an aside: what it is like to be conned by a psycho??How can a nation remain great when its population is under educated or dumbed down??

You based this on Trump trying to protect US companies? 1/2 of which he criticizes himself?

I have an account with neither. We just installed a new HD phone system at work and as soon as they booted up the system, I got three robocalls in Mandarin in a half an a half hour and you could hear all the other phones in the office ringing away merrily.

Must be Hauwei circuits in there. Now that all of our conversations go through the internet into "clouds", not one private conversation is possible.
