oh boy

 

BEIJING — Ford Motor Co's imported vehicles are being held up at Chinese ports, three people with knowledge of the matter told Reuters, underscoring how U.S. goods are facing increased customs scrutiny in China amid a tense trade standoff.

 

The three people said Ford and Lincoln vehicles were facing unusual delays at customs, with officials asking for extra technical checks. Two of the people said U.S.-made models of some German carmakers, mainly SUVs, being brought into China, were also affected.

 

Ford was being asked to do extra checks on emission components, said a China-based Ford executive familiar with the matter, asking not be named because of the sensitivity of the issue.

Yes, let's get those Chinese engineers in there to triple inspect those vehicles.  Translate:  Steal as much intellectual property while we still can.

Please don't say that.

They are known to steal IP - blatantly.  China will be coming under more and more pressure to stop their unfair practices.  

I'll call those chiselers out until it stops!  Don't hold your breath...
