Habib also applauded China’s interest in Washington’s agric

ricultural products such as apples and cherries, and specifically mentioned

tourists and students from China.

With the current trade disputes between China and the US, however, Habib is seeing some frustration in his state.

“I’m of course frustrated at the effects of some of the Chinese-im

posed tariffs on our exporters – that’s a huge problem first for our growers, and companies in our

aerospace supply chain, and definitely our fish and seafood – they’ve been affected by Chinese tariffs,” said Habib.

With the Trump administration gradually imposi

ng 25 percent tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports over the past year, China has already retaliated with

tariffs on $110 billion worth of US products, and has planned a tariff hike on $60 billion worth of US goods on June

The US no longer accounts for such a significant market share as

it did in the old days,” Mei said. “And the major market share is taken by the domestic mar

ket, Europe, Japan and other emerging overseas markets. The US move will gradually later affect its own market.”

Mei said the US ban on Chinese tech titan Huawei and rumored imposition of restrict

ions on Chinese surveillance giant Hikvision will not hamper the growth of China’s tech sector.

The US accounts for only a small part of Hikvision’s overseas ma

rkets, and Hikvision is not heavily reliant on US components for production, Mei said.

“Huawei’s chip arm HiSilicon has produced 70 percent of global surveillance chips. In past years, Ja

panese companies were Hikvision’s main chip suppliers, and now the major supplier is HiSilicon.” Mei added.
