In order to mitigate the effects of the lingering Sino-US trade dispute, a number of Hong Kong and mainland companies have opted to optimise their supply chains by adjusting their production priorities. This has enabled them to reduce their exposure to the tariffs, while giving them enhanced opportunities to service the domestic market. All the strategies on offer, however, have one common element – Rules of Origin, the criteria used to establish the provenance of any given product and, thus, the applicable import duties.
