Chinese consumers ready to boycott US goods, survey shows

A recent consumer survey found that 54% of Chinese consumers polled across 300 Chinese cities would “probably” or “definitely” avoid U.S. products in response to continued U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods. Chinese state media has proven effective in encouraging consumers to avoid goods from certain countries, with a recent boycott of South Korean goods in response to their deployment of a U.S. missile defense system providing one such example of success. Thus far, however, Chinese state media has not discussed such a boycott, which analysts have interpreted to mean that China is either hoping to restart negotiations and reach a compromise, or wanting to avoid collateral damage to the Chinese economy, as many American goods are produced in China or are part of corporations partially owned by Chinese investors.
