, which countries are the most risky to ship to

since April 3 this year, the United States made the first list of proposed tax increases for $50billion of goods, the trade situation between China and the United States has been gradually deteriorating this year. By September 24, the United States had imposed tariffs of 10% to 25% on Chinese goods worth $250billion, accounting for almost half of China's exports to the United States. On January 1, 2019, the tax rate of these goods would be raised to 25%

on the other hand, the retail industry in the United States is also sluggish this year: Toy r us, which once existed like an empire, closed all stores in the United States; Sears, the "ancestor" of the department store, applied for bankruptcy protection; Dollar tree, a "supermarket for the poor" that emerged suddenly during the economic crisis, is considering closing its stores, reducing its scale and reducing the number of products by 40% - 55%...

in addition to the United States, which actively closes its doors, some countries can't survive. There is a new term called "Vita". These four countries are Venezuela, Italy, Turkey and Argentina

meet the requirements of gb/t228 (2) 010 "tensile test method for metallic materials at room temperature". In the Asian market, India, Indonesia and other countries have also experienced substantial devaluation of their currencies. Many countries have introduced policies to restrict imports, hoping to stabilize the exchange rate. But at present, it seems that this trick is really like a mantis arm in a cart - it's useless at all. However, this does not prevent them from reducing their imports of "luxury goods and non necessities", and most of them believe that this is a good opportunity to develop their own manufacturing industry

exchange rate

RMB rebounded strongly, and the momentum for stabilizing the exchange rate was sufficient

6.9. The hearts of those who did not settle foreign exchange were broken. On November 1, after the leaders of China and the United States communicated, the onshore and offshore RMB recovered the 6.92 level, and the offshore RMB rose nearly 550 points against the United States, setting a new half month high of 6.9191; The onshore RMB rose 452 points against the US, or 0.65%, and also set a new half month high of 6.9199

on November 8, the central parity rate of the RMB against the United States was reduced by 98 basis points to 6.9163, and the official closing price of the onshore RMB against the United States was 6.9285

after the central bank and Hong Kong signed the memorandum of cooperation on using the central clearing system of debt instruments to issue bills of the people's Bank of China in September, on November 7, the central bank officially issued the central bank's Jinan new era Gold Testing Instrument Co., Ltd. Jinan experimental machine factory in Hong Kong. We sincerely welcome your bank note. The central bank's move has played a role in stabilizing the exchange rate by tightening the liquidity of RMB in the offshore market and raising the cost of shorting RMB. Its essence is to adjust the interest rate and exchange rate. Similar operations have achieved very good results at the beginning of 2016 and the end of May 2017. Secondly, the central bank's issuance of central bank bills in Hong Kong for the first time has strong signal significance, releasing the central bank's determination to stabilize the offshore exchange rate

indeed, exchange rate stability is the most important

what signals did the Expo and Canton Fair send

on November 4, the 124th Canton Fair came to an end, the day before the resolution of the opening force of the fair almost reached 1/100000. A total of 189812 purchasers from 215 countries and regions attended the meeting, with a total export turnover of 206.494 billion, both down about 1% year-on-year

not long ago, since November 1, China has reduced the MFN tax rate of some commodities, involving 1585 tax items. The average import tax rate has decreased from 10.5% to 7.8%, with an average decrease of about 26%, mainly involving textiles, electromechanical equipment and parts. This tariff reduction is conducive to domestic industrial upgrading, reducing enterprise costs and meeting the multi-level consumption needs of the masses, and also releases a positive signal to the outside world that China will expand its opening-up

Zhang Jun, chief economist of Morgan Stanley Huaxin securities, said that the three carriages of economic development are investment, consumption and net exports. If net exports are affected under the trade war, the influence of consumption will be more direct, and the import demand for high-end consumer goods will become larger and larger. While boosting consumption, it will force domestic enterprises to upgrade their products, and promote the upgrading of production lines and technology to increase investment

the United States has opened the "largest ever" sanctions against Iran

the United States has comprehensively resumed the announcement of sanctions against Iran unilaterally in a combination of regular and irregular ways since November 5, focusing on the energy sector with the intention of strangling the economic lifeline of this middle east country. The sanctions targeted more than 200 individuals and vessels in Iran's shipping and energy sector; Impose sanctions on Iran's flagship airline Iran airlines and 65 aircraft; Include the Iran Atomic Energy Organization and its 23 subsidiary bodies and relevant individuals in the sanctions list; Sanctions were imposed on 50 Iranian banks and their subsidiaries, as well as more than 700 individuals, entities, aircraft and ships. Sanctions are linked, involving almost all countries and regions in the world

the United States also announced that it would temporarily allow eight countries and regions to continue to buy Iranian oil after the resumption of sanctions: China (mainland and Taiwan), India, Japan, Greece, Turkey, South Korea and Italy. But this is only a temporary exemption with additional conditions - the oil trade with Iran must be gradually stopped within six months, and it will never be extended. I'm afraid that in the short term, Kunlun bank can't accept the payment from Iranian customers

Iran's economy was in trouble before the United States withdrew from the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue. Since the end of last year, the exchange rate of Iran's local currency, the rial, has fallen precipitously against the United States, and the official exchange rate has depreciated by more than 300%, pushing up the domestic inflation rate. Iranians' wallets are getting smaller and smaller
