Trump’s China Tariffs Pinch Healthcare IndustryJune 20, 2018 |
by Steven Porter
A tariff on Chinese goods announced late last week by the Trump administration is expected to add financial pressure on the U.S. healthcare industry.
The list of goods subject to the 25% tariff beginning early next month includes a variety of components for sterilization and medical imaging equipment. A second, shorter list of Chinese goods will undergo further review before potentially being made subject to the tariff.
