Why Chinese tire companies Step on thunder while going overseas

On July 11, the Ministry of Commerce said at a regular press conference that it had noticed that the United States had cancelled reports on tariffs on 110 Chinese goods.

According to the relevant personnel of the Ministry of Commerce, this is the normal tariff elimination procedure of the US.

Some people in the company told Tire World that the above 11 products do not include tires.

Moreover, they are no longer pinning their hopes of changing the foreign trade pattern on the US to eliminate tariffs.

It is understood that in the face of increasingly severe international trade frictions, more and more Chinese tire companies have changed their minds, responded positively, and changed their situation from their own circumstances.

Some of the powerful tire companies, in order to avoid trade barriers, even go abroad to build factories overseas.

However, people familiar with the matter said that even companies that went abroad could encounter other trade problems.

US re-export is illegal

Not long ago, Yang Chen, managing partner of Jincheng Tongda Law Firm, revealed that several Chinese tire companies accepted the US Customs investigation last year.

US Customs suspects that these Chinese tire companies have problems with entrepot trade.

According to industry insiders, China is the country with the most anti-dumping in the world. In order to avoid trade sanctions, some companies have switched to retling trade to export tires.

According to Yang Chen, in the United States, entrepot trade is illegal, and Chinese tire companies are taking risks.

According to reports, when the Chinese steel industry encountered a trade investigation, the US complaints mentioned the problem of false origin.

The United States said that some Chinese steel companies have re-exported to Southeast Asian countries and then imported into the United States to evade tariffs imposed by them.

Although this case ended in China's victory, it has undergone a long and arduous process, and the business of related companies has been seriously affected.

The United States focuses on the origin of tires

Yang Chen reminded that after the Chinese tire companies set up factories overseas, it does not mean that they can rest easy.

The tires produced by these overseas factories do not necessarily represent the products of the countries where they are produced. Sometimes, even if there is a certificate of origin, US Customs may not approve it.

According to reports, the US Customs and the Ministry of Commerce will investigate the origin of imported products.

The core of the investigations in these two departments is whether the products produced in overseas factories have obtained reasonable certificates of origin.

It is reported that in some Southeast Asian countries, the control over the issuance of certificates of origin is not strict. Certificates of origin can also be obtained for products that are simply processed and packaged locally.

Yang Chen said that the United States does not recognize the certificate of origin issued by the above countries, they have their own set of certification rules.

Some domestic tire companies have insufficient capacity in overseas factories, and sometimes the domestically produced embryos are shipped to overseas factories for simple processing.

Yang Chen reminded the company that this product does not meet the US origin requirements.

"China wants to be a strong tire country, and globalization is inevitable. In this process, tire companies must pay less tuition fees and use the right methods to overcome various problems and achieve growth and development," he said.
