TRUMPS TARRIFFS AFFECT VALVES
USA President Donald Trump’s tariffs on China might seem a world away, but they certainly impact on countries elsewhere, and they do include certain types of valves.
At least six codes are included in the list, including 8481.10.00 pressure reducing valves, 8481.20.00 valves for hydraulics, 8481.30.20 and 8481.30.90 check valves, 8481.40.00 safety relief valves and 8481.90.90 valve parts.
With a major market so impacted, it seems reasonable that China will look to other markets to take up the slack. And there are dire warnings of more to come.
