Retaliation in tariffs dispute

Retaliation in tariffs dispute

The additional tariff of 25pc will be levied against 2,493 goods including liquefied natural gas, soy oil, peanut oil, petrochemicals, frozen vegetables and cosmetics, the ministry said, and of 20pc on 1,078 products.

"Such an easy way to avoid Tariffs?" the US leader said, "Make or produce your goods and products in the good old USA".

China has hit back at the United States in a new round of escalating tariffs, triggering an immediate fall in stock markets as hope continues to fade for quick resolution to the damaging trade war between the world's two largest economies.

Ignoring US President Trump's warnings not to retaliate against American tariffs on Chinese products, Beijing did just that on Monday, slapping tariffs on $60 billion worth of American imports and spooking the world bracing for a trade war.

In the middle of the negotiations last week, Trump hiked tariffs on Chinese goods to 25% from 10%. They said that loss could widen to one percentage point if both sides extend penalties to all of each other's exports.

"Despite the Trump wild card factor, I would suggest that the current trade war is a symbol of things to come".

The US argues that China's trade surplus with the US is the result of unfair practices, include state support for domestic companies. Business groups say that exodus is accelerating as some other companies shift production of goods for the USA market to other countries.

Chinese officials have invited the top US envoys - Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin -to Beijing, Kudlow said on Fox News.

Monday's claim, made in a series of tweets, is also a threat to American companies like John Deere and Caterpillar, which produce components or finished products in China.

Fox News' Chris Wallace pressed White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on who might bear the costs of President Donald Trump's tariffs on Chinese trade, with Kudlow pretty quickly admitting that's not really the case.

"This is the kind of response we should expect from China going forward".

"It's clear that there is a lot of nervousness around the U.S".

While President Donald Trump continues to assert that China will pay for tariffs levied by the U.S., Goldman Sachs said that the cost of tariffs levied previous year "have fallen entirely on U.S. businesses and households".

Imposing those tariffs would impact a wide range of consumer goods - clothes, shoes, toys, and electronics such as iPhones - that have been mostly exempted so far and could prompt steep cost increases that many Americans would likely notice.

China's state media has sought to reassure businesses and consumers that the ruling Communist Party has the resources and policy tools to respond to the dispute with Washington.

"We have said many times that adding tariffs won't resolve any problem. Yet, today's announcement is merely a start, and the Trump Administration must do much more to fight for American workers and products", Pelosi said.
