By as early as the start of next week, the Trump administration is considering imposing tariffs on nearly 1,300 Chinese exports as a punitive action for alleged theft related to intellectual property (IP). CNN Money provides an indicative list of items that may be subject to tariffs and includes items belonging to the aerospace and marine equipment, manufacturing, and medical supplies sectors, among others. The combined worth of the Chinese items is estimated to be around $50 billion.
