Complications started with Trade Tensions
Chinese Government has been more determined to produce home-made chips for everything tech related– particularly for use within the transport and healthcare sector — in a competition to raise its profile as a leading tech innovator, but this is majorly to avoid the over-reliability on US imports, which are continually under financial harm due to ongoing trade tensions.
For instance, President Donald Trump levied a 25% tariff on Chinese Goods worth $50 Billion, back in June.
