The Outdoor Industry Association of the U.S. is protesting the decision by U.S. President Donald Trump to impose tariffs on half of all Chinese imports. The tariffs, intended to strengthen the U.S. position in trade negotiations with China, will apply to some $200 billion in goods. As China is the world's largest producer of sporting goods, the Association contends that the tariffs will result in higher costs for member companies, higher prices for consumers and a dampening of the outdoor industry overall. The Trump administration will be detailing procedures through which companies may petition to remove items from the list, which, for the moment, includes such products as bicycles, backpacks, headgear and camping equipment.
