Statement On New Tariffs On Chinese Technology Imports

Washington, DC – Internet Association Director, Trade Policy Jordan Haas issued the following statement on the announcement that the Trump administration will impose tariffs on Chinese technology imports:

“The internet industry appreciates the administration is looking to address the uneven playing field for American companies looking to do business in China. Lack of respect for intellectual property rights, forced technology transfer policies, and state interventions represent significant trade barriers that harm the U.S. internet sector. Tariffs on Chinese made technology products will hurt U.S. companies and only make it more expensive and difficult for American businesses flourish.”
