Professor Idris is among the people who have expressed his views on increased tariffs on China. According to Professor Idris tariffs against China will have tremendous effects on the country. The tariff was imposed due to China acquiring the US technology unfairly. The Chinese stole the American IP annually. The intellectual property violation by the Chinese includes counterfeits and theft of trade secrets. The violations of intellectual property have been going on for many years. Thus, the president decided to have measures to prevent such actions from taking place. There is no doubt that the tariff will help put an end to the theft of intellectual property which has been going on.
