Alan Lips of Gerson Preston Klein Lips Eisenberg Gelber (Florida, USA) has been quoted in a recent article by The Real Deal entitled "Hurricanes may buffer South Florida from Trump’s new tariffs, experts say". Below is an excerpt from the article.
"Hurricanes may have protected the South Florida construction industry from feeling the full force of President Trump’s new import taxes. The president’s newly announced tariffs on imported steel and aluminum are not expected to have much impact on the local construction industry because in order to withstand hurricane-force winds, local developers say, structures are primarily built with concrete and domestic rebar."
