THAT'S WHY i wrote my comment - to get them to see the rationale of overcoming their prejudice. Otherwise our economy will go downhill in the coming years, what with petroleum oil and palm oil prices down. If you have been around the free trade zones and industrial sites in the country, they are not doing well. Neither is retail. Clear signals we need to realign.

See the attached. I know what i am talking about.  Malaysia is the one to benefit first from the trade war BUT ONLY IF we realign quickly. I don't expect much intelligence around though.

Politicians care more about their own interest instead of the country's.

Abolishing GST is a good example. So what you wrote is good but may not materialize unless it's in their interest to do so.

My take is simple. Usa vs China. Vietnam benefits most.
Its located right next door to China. China manufactured goods , transport to Vietnam. At Vietnam it is then shipped to Usa. There you escape the tariff.
But for USA who wanna become their transit country for their goods to escape tariff from China? Mexico ?

It's not even a solution for China to move to other countries. In fact it may even be a costly mistake. US will still have a big trade deficit with the world. What happens if US starts a trade war with with Vietnam next? Or with Malaysia, or whoever.

It is utterly silly for Trump to start a trade war with China but ended up with a higher trade deficit even if the US buys nothing from China.

Great summary
Vietnam’s economy has been fantastic for a long time. This current shift is going to push them further up n grow even faster. Worked w Vietnamese colleagues n they were highly efficient n learned as our Server Operation division is shifted there from Singapore. Again, Msia was overlooked.

China should not put all its eggs in one basket n bank heavily on Vietnam. Msia can offer itself as the second choice. And we have to act fast

If factories don't move back to the US, other countries will eventually be targeted next.

In the long term, China should forget about selling goods and lending its money to the US.

You don't see Trump's intention clearly. He is just merely targeting China because China is a threat to USA in the Pacific. Other countries that got caught in his trade war just because of collateral damage . Trump cannot put tariff on China's goods only because that would be discriminating against China and provoking another country to an all out war. So Trump need to find another excuse for a trade war, which is trade deficit with the world. So all got involved in his stint.

Yes, agreed. The US will do its best to prevent another Superpower to emerge. Chinese already doing its best to put in position to be superpower by 2025, through the one-belt initiatve and south china sea initiative. This are major-league world-stage strategies at play.

Just like Opium war in China is an excuse to get into all of China, trade war is just an excuse for bigger issue. Like some already said, it's all about to be No. 1 in the world.

On the broad sense, China could do that. But that would also mean killing millions of companies who rely on selling goods to US.

There’s a big domestic market in China. Same applies to poor countries like Malaysia and those in South East Asia, South Asia and Africa. USA and Europe are not the only marketplace in the world.
