Arkansas Still Engaged With Chinese Companies Amid New Trade Tariffs

Arkansas economic development officials are still engaged in talks with Chinese officials to bring two major durable goods projects to Arkansas. The news comes amid a new round of trade tariffs from President Donald Trump’s administration that could thwart progress and push Far East investments to other international markets.

On Monday (Sept, 17), Trump released a new $200 billion list of products subject to a 10% tariff beginning Sept. 24. That’s in addition to more than $300 billion in Chinese goods already under U.S. tariffs.

Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC) spokeswoman Brandi Hinkle said two long overdue economic development projects from the Shandong Province of China announced in early 2016 and 2017 are still on the table.    MORE
