Taiwan's screw importation to US surpasses China
2 Apr 2019 15:22 reported by Isora
This year in January, Taiwan totally exported around 71,000 tons of screw to the US, which has hit a historic new high. It was also the only month in the recent years that the screw importation from Taiwan to the US surpassed 7 tons.
However, last year in November China imported around 99,600 tons of screw to the US, while this year in January the figure went down to 72,000 tons roughly.
After that, in February Taiwanese screw importation to the US was 45,000 tons, and China only imported fewer than 36,000 tons of screw to the US, which was really rare because Taiwanese seldom surpassed China in the screw exportation to the US.
In the meanwhile, such dramatic change can also be considered as a result of the trade war between the US and China.
