It noted that China’s surplus comes mainly from lab

mobiles and agricultural products, indicating that both countries have capitalized on their respective industrial advantages.

“Strict controls by the US over exports to China is one of the important reasons for the trade deficit,” the re

port said, adding that the measures involve around 3,100 items in 10 categories, mostly high-tech products.

Tom Harper, a researcher at the University of Surrey in southea

stern England, said since the Sino-US trade friction escalated, the impact is already being

felt on global supply chains. For example, China has sought to move away from the US to other countries for the goo

ds it needs. Brazil, for example, has begun to supply China with soybeans previously bought from the US.

These moves demonstrate the dangers of trade conflicts, with US farmers bearing the brunt of Chinese tariffs, Harper said.
