China Announces New Set of Retaliatory Tariffs on US Goods
Friday, 10 August 2018 10:07 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

China announced late Wednesday that it will impose an additional 25 percent tariffs on $16 billion of U.S. imports.

The new tariffs will take effect on August 23, matching exactly a new round of U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods announced Tuesday by the Trump administration.

The latest tit-for-tat tariffs have accelerated a trade war between the world's two economic superpowers that began July 6, when Washington officially imposed 25-percent tariffs on more than 800 Chinese products worth $34 billion. Beijing retaliated by imposing the same percentage of retaliatory tariffs on 545 U.S. items, also worth $34 billion.

The Trump administration has also threatened to apply an extra 25-percent tariffs on an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese exports.

U.S. President Donald Trump has cited China™s unfair trade practices and intellectual property theft as a reason for the tariffs.
