Seattle’s Grungy Year Ends With a Small Export Expansion

Container handling by the Northwest Seaport Alliance’s facilities in Seattle and Tacoma ended 2017 with a 3% drop in volumes in December despite a 2% rise in exports. That meant the full year total handling rose by just 2%. One reason was lower volumes coming from China (7% lower) while the region also likely lost market share to Port of Prince Rupert for traffic more broadly. The latter experienced a 27% surge in handling in 2017 after new facilities were opened by DP World. The loss of traffic from China and Hong Kong was borne in large part by Evergreen Marine whose volumes slumped by 24% 2017. Hapag-Lloyd remains the largest container-line serving the port, however, with a 12% share of volumes due to its shipments from Canada.

One China Compliance Complicates Taiwan’s Food Export Growth

Chinese port officials are taking a stricter stance on labelling, with food imports from Taiwan being destroyed if the “Taiwan Area” designator is missing. That’s part of a reinforced interpretation of the “one China” policy over the past year, but is a long way from a broader disruption of trade. Chinese food imports from Taiwan climbed 12% in the past 12 months on a year earlier, led by processed fruit / dairy (16% of the total) and frozen fish (9%). Tastes by region vary significantly, with the leading product in Shanghai region being processed fruit / dairy ($63 million), non-citrus fruits in Fujian ($44 million) and baked products in Zhejiang ($34 million).

Lucky 13 For Russia’s Commodity Boom That Faces Steel Tariff Roulette

Russia’s commodity-led trade boom entered a 13th straight month in November after exports and imports rose by 23% on a year earlier. Exports to China, of which 59% are crude oil, surged 36% higher. As a result the Russian trade surplus reached the highest on an an annualized basis since April 2016. While energy is the most important sector, the growth in exports has been broad based with copper having risen 89%, steel by 34% and electrical machinery by 29%. Near-term Russian steel exports may face protectionist risks. That could be triggered by forthcoming section 232 case decisions in the U.S. which could both block Russian exports and exacerbate oversupply in other markets.

Trump at 1: 26 Trade Actions But The Deficit Keeps Rising

One year on from the inauguration there have been at least 26 specific actions on trade from the Trump administration. Among trade deals the President withdrew from the TPP and launched renegotiations of NAFTA and KORUS. The commitment to bilateral trade deals has largely been unsuccessful (except for the Philippines) though formal dialogues with Japan and India as well as the export-deal led Asia trip are doing a similar job. There has been a degree of multilateralism too with the “excess capacity” industry commitment with the EU and Japan. China remains the main piece of incomplete business while the completion of the section 301 IP policy review continues. That follows an end to the extended comprehensive economic dialogue that did not fulfill the promise of the first 100 days’ discussions. The National Security Strategy brought trade into the defense sphere along with a specific defense review and critical minerals order. Trade cases under existing law included the national security reviews of steel and aluminum, safeguarding reviews of washing machine and solar panel production and a self-initiated aluminum sheet investigation. The Omnibus, trade deal abuse, trade enforcement effectiveness, “Buy American” and pipeline investment reviews are incomplete or unpublished, while no action was taken on currency manipulation. The President has clearly kept to his commitment to act on trade. Yet, tax reform will arguably lead to an increase in the President’s main trade metric – the deficit. In that regard all this action has been ineffective in cutting the deficit. It was 11% higher in the February to November period than a year earlier, and breached $50 billion in November for the first time since January 2012.
