china us relationsBrowsing through articles in one of our favorite industries, marine, AEC Magnetics caught this article in the trade pub, "Soundings Trade Only."  It is representative of a lot of trade discussion over tariffs. 

The article is entitled, "Trade War Troubles," by Reagan Haynes.  We've been seeing similar articles in different sectors that detail how recent trade tariffs with China are negatively affecting some manufacturing operations.   This article, and many like it, describe the effects from one side of the table.  Today, AEC Magnetics weighs in from the other side.

Also important:  90-percent (and as much as 97-percent, according to some) of the world's REEs are mined and produced in China. This long-preceded current trade and tariff adjustments. This is not news to western manufacturers. They have had to depend on China for permanent magnetic materials for decades, as there have been no mines in the Western Hemisphere for almost 20 years!
