How High Plains States Could Be Impacted By China Tariffs

Jul 6, 2018

The United States’ trade war with China could have long-lasting effects beyond the current growing season.

Today, China put tariffs on $34 billion worth of American imports in response to American tariffs imposed by the Trump administration.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce says Chinese, Canadian and Mexican tariffs will impact exports in High Plains states to varying degrees.

Texas will be the hardest hit by the tariffs at almost $4 billion. About $360 million in Kansas exports are threatened; Nebraska’s exports will be impacted to the tune of $327 million; Colorado will see a $277 million hit; about $208 million in exports will be threatened in Oklahoma.
