Clark Hill attorney Mark Ludwikowski featured on NTD Television to Talk Tariff Deal

Jan 16, 2020

A year and a half after launching a trade war against China, President Trump signed a partial truce on Wednesday, January 15, 2020. The president agreed to relax some of the tariffs imposed on Chinese imports, and in return, Beijing has agreed to buy more American products and make other structural changes to the Chinese economy overall. The deal is said to reduce tariffs on both the American and Chinese sides. This is known as Phase 1 of the deal, and the president tweeted that he will visit Beijing at a later date to discuss signing Phase 2.

Clark Hill attorney Mark Ludwikowski was featured on ND TV to give commentary on the tariff deal agreement signing, citing cautious optimism on the deal.

“Certainly the reduction in tariffs helps US importers because they have to pay those tariffs, so we are optimistic that it will work and that China is serious about making it work.”
