Wilbur Ross hints that auto tariffs aren't coming

American firms soon to get licenses to sell parts to Huawei – US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross

Ross on Sunday said the licences "will be forthcoming very shortly", noting that the government received 260 requests.

"We will continue to negotiate trade deals with countries in this region". "Phase One" of that deal is expected to come later this month.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei was placed on the U.S. Commerce Department's Entity List on May 16th for security reasons. The company says it purchased $11 billion in American products previous year. However, the Trump administration wants to head off tariffs based on the willingness of automakers in the European Union to invest more in the USA, according to Ross, and the administration has praised rising investment by those automakers.

These short-term licences expire at the conclude of this thirty day period.

The Entity List action has hurt sales at a number of Huawei's United States suppliers, including chip manufacturers such as Micron and Intel, and software makers like Google. Many of those American sellers to Huawei have spoken out against the policy, saying it could lead to the development of similar products from Chinese companies and threaten American technological dominance.

North Korea test-fires 'super large' multiple rocket launcher
The test's success proved the capability of the "continuous-fire system" to " totally destroy " a group of enemy targets. This is the third time this year the North test-fired a super-large multiple rocket launcher.

The US has now granted temporary licences to US companies to trade with Huawei where it is for the objective of "maintain [ing] and support [ing] existing and now fully operational networks and equipment, including software updates and patches". As a result, US lawmakers are concerned that Huawei's phones and networking equipment contain backdoors that can send information to Beijing.

During a speech about USA commitment in Asia, Ross said that he would be remiss if he did not address the GSP issue given its publicity in Thailand.

"Right now, there is not a Chinese competitor in the PC operating system space".

U.S. officials have long accused Huawei of working to undermine United States national security and foreign policy interests.

There are at this time above 100 Chinese entities, together with Huawei, that have been added to the USA trade blacklist, which has prevented them from purchasing U.S. software package and parts.
