The article reports on the positive views of retailers on the rising of import rates in Asia. Some of the biggest retailers importing Asian furniture observed that part of their business is increasing despite of accelerating costs, communications confusion, antidumping hassles and other roadblocks. According to Jake Jabs, owner of Englewood, the cost of doing business with Asia increases due to a new move of free-float Chinese currency and rising raw materials costs.
