Microsoft joins other companies that are considering moving their activities outside China for fear of a worsening trade dispute

    Microsoft is joining other companies that are considering moving their activities out of China for fear of a worsening trade dispute Microsoft has joined other companies, led by Amazon, HP and Dell, all of which are considering moving their activities out of China for fear of a growing trade dispute between Washington and Beijing. Japan's Nikkei newspaper quoted sources as saying.


    HP and Dell are studying the transfer of nearly 30 percent of laptop production outside of China, while Microsoft is discussing the transfer of some Xbox production outside the Asian country.


    As for Amazon, it is possible to transfer some of its work, especially the smart voice device "Eco" outside China.


    The potential move by technology companies comes amid concerns about a trade war despite a recent truce between the two countries.


    China has received customs duties of 25 percent on US imports of Chinese goods worth 200 billion dollars, and China has reciprocated, while the administration of President Donald Trump has threatened to impose more tariffs on Chinese goods worth an additional $ 300 billion.


    Washington and Beijing will resume their trade talks face-to-face next week on the comments of White House economic adviser Larry Kodlo.
