RFID chip in China and US trade war
The chip is the most powerful weapon that american have against China, also is te world’s strongest moat!
The chip is also a problem that the Chinese people have to face. No matter how exaggerated the GDP figures are. If there is no comprehensive domestic chip replacement, the sino-us trade war will have a huge impact on the chip and chip related industry. The sino-us trade war is imminent. Who can take chip as nuclear weapon, US or China?
Vice President of the China international economic and exchange center Wei jianguo, March 24th, told the China Daily that after the list of first discontinued concessions announced. China is working on the second and the third list, such as aircraft, RFID chip area. What’s more, the measures China can take are not limited to commodities. But other industries, such as tourism.
Do you know how many US dollar that China import the chip per year?
In fact, it’s a joke taking chips to coerce and punish US, those who say this do not seem to understand the particularities and importance of this industry. And may think that our manufacturing and purchasing power are strong enough to make other person freeze. However, China needs to import $230 billion of chips a year. And for many years it is the first to import a single product. What we need to keep in mind is the $230 billion chip, or the chip that the customer specifies, can’t changed. Or that China cannot independently design and produce the chips that must to imported. Those domestic chips which can replace imported chip, our domestic chip enterprise already did enough outstanding!
