Understanding the Impact of the US-China Trade War on the Global Smartphone Industry

Jun 13, 2019 |


After the raise in tariff to 25% the US has imposed a trade ban on Huawei. China has no intention to cede ground either. It has also imposed a 25% tariff on US exports to China. It is unlikely that this battle will find an easy or quick resolution. The battle for the future lies in this trade war. Technology industries and financial markets are both intertwined. The world trade and finance system the US has created and maintained over decades is being challenged.
