Trade war brings uncertainty in business: the violation of the usual supply chains, could hit American companies will reduce investments in the development of business within the United States, which will affect the entire economy. Also, the Bank believes that since September 1 the new American tariffs on Chinese goods worth $ 300 billion still in force.

A trade war between the U.S. and China began in 2018. The occasion was the introduction from the United States of customs duties on Chinese goods. In response to trading aggression Beijing responded in kind. As arguments against the U.S. China used its currency, lowering the exchange rate of the yuan to a record.
