Starting your own business is hard. Starting your own import/export business is even harder. There is much more to understand and things can go really bad really fast if you are not careful. That being said, if you have the experience, education, grit, and drive to take on this industry you can be successful. If you are looking to get into the import/export industry by starting your own business here are a few pointers that we recommend you follow. 

You need a strong online presence. Without an online presence you will not be able to have a networked import/export business. The goal of this is to balance the flow of communications, sell products online, and most importantly build your customer base to drive profits for your international business. Having a professional blog on your website will allow you to have a continuous flow of engaging communications with your clients, something that most customers want in brand new companies. 

Along with an online presence you need to find out what you want to sell. This includes understanding which markets are good to enter. We recommend that you find a product or industry that you are passionate about and that you think could sell in international markets. Looking for which markets to enter is where your trend-spotting skills come in to play. In general, the best products are ones that are just starting to become popular or show some promise to being so in the future. Do your research and think before you begin because finding the right product and the right market is probably the biggest decision you will make. 

When you have your online presence and product/industry decided, focus on your logistics. Logistics is the most complex aspect of importing and exporting. Think about it, you have to take a product created somewhere and sell it somewhere else. For example, how do the grapes from the vineyard in South Africa make it to the wine glasses of drinkers in California? Every successful business has a strong logistics team, plan, and strategy that makes the flow very easy for all employees. When you get your logistics down to a science, you will be ready to hit the ground running. 

Building a strong online presence, figuring out what to sell and where, and getting logistics down is all very important in this industry. However, these are only three of the many aspects that make a successful import/export business. Bottom line is that this industry is a complex system that requires nothing but hard work and determination.

Where the U.S. and China stand in the trade war is currently unknown. There were Washington
insiders claiming that a trade war deal was around the corner, all to find out that the deadline has
been pushed back. Last month Chinese officials proposed a push back of 90 days on increased
tariffs on Chinese imports. Though China is showing tremendous respect and actively trying to
come to an agreement with the U.S., a 60 day push back is all the U.S. granted. The two
presidents were scheduled to hold a meeting before the initial March deadline in Florida, both
parties hoping to strike a deal. This meeting never happened. Though we do not currently know
where both countries are in the process of coming to an agreement, we can be certain of one
thing: both countries still do no see eye to eye.
The topic that is stalling this agreement is the tech industry. China wants the U.S. to be more
flexible with products in tech industries like telecommunications systems. The U.S. wants China
to enforce stricter policies on intellectual property. The so-called tariff war is now shifting it’s
focus and becoming specifically a tech war. According to Michael Pillsbury, the American
Director of the Center on Chinese Strategy at the Hudson Institute, “Chinese demands have yet
to be addressed. They want to break into the U.S. e-commerce payments system, and have it
blessed by the U.S. side. And the U.S wants the Chinese to promise not to retaliate if there are
new tariffs. I cannot imagine China agreeing to this.” Because the U.S. and China still do not see
eye to eye, this is stalling the two countries to coming to a deal.
A deal was close to being agreed upon just a month ago, but now neither side seems to think an
impasse on disagreements is likely. More updates on the trade war will be posted here next
month.

Last month we left off with an understanding of where the United States and China currently stand in the Section 301 trade war. At the beginning of the year the United States initially planned to increase rates on list three items to 25%. However, the United States granted a 90 day period in which the rates on list three items would remain at 10%, allowing more time for an agreement to be made between both countries before raising the rates. The two countries are still trying to come to an agreement. Below are some updates on the trade war.

On Monday February 11, “the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 53.22 points lower at 25,053.11, giving up an earlier gain of 90 points. The S&P 500 ended the day up less than 0.1 percent at 2,709.80 as gains in the industrials sector were capped by losses in health care and communications services. The Nasdaq Composite closed 0.1 percent higher at 7,307.90” according to CNBC. The United States is halted at a waiting point and not much fluctuation will occur as people are just waiting out to see the likelihood of a trade deal.

There is speculation that the two Presidents will meet in Florida within the next month or so. This week the United States and China will continue to try and strike a deal by focusing specifically on intellectual property. United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer wishes to operate in an environment where technology, innovation, and know-how are all protected.

Analysts expect a deal as early as the end of this month. China needs a deal badly to calm the United States’ President from imposing another round of tariffs on imports from China. It has been reported that last month, the Chinese economy grew at it’s slowest pace in 28 years.

A deal is on the horizon and drastic changes are in the near future. Stay updated on Section 301 news here on the DutyCalc blog.

The trade war between the U.S. and China continues to impact economies on both sides. Tariffs have caused the U.S. stock market to plummet as the changes have led to a disruption in supply chain for major companies like Amazon, Facebook, and Apple. In China, analysts have reported that economic growth has slowed to its lowest in ten years. Sure, investors and shareowners are worried, but the two countries are making progress towards repairing the trade relationship.

It has been confirmed that on December 1, 2018 the U.S. and China reached an agreement to delay an increase on list three products. The increase of 10% to 25% on U.S. products was originally set to begin on January 1st. However, according to the White House, there will be a 90-day extension. If no agreement is made within those 90 days, rates will then rise to 25%.

In addition, China has agreed to, “purchase a not yet agreed upon, but very substantial amount of agricultural, energy, industrial and other product from the United States to reduce the trade imbalance” (Crowell Moring). This agreement from China may be a policy change or may be left up to private sector entities. The commitment has not yet been confirmed.

Lastly, during the December 1st meeting China also agreed to reduce the tariffs on U.S. automobile exports down from 40%.

There is still a significant gap between what the U.S. is seeking and what China is willing to offer, but these minor changes and progressions seem to hint at a solution. What happens within the next 90 days will give us an idea of what might happen in the near future.
