China Urged to Buy More US Chips

China could be attempting to mend fences with the United States despite its opposition to new us tariffs against $60 billion of Chinese goods. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Sunday talk shows that the $60 billion in USA tariffs could be avoided through talks and a possible agreement that could require China to open its markets to more US goods. China's ministry of commerce accused the USA of "creating a serious precedent" and imposed sanctions on U.S. goods worth 3 billion United States dollars, including fruit, pork, recycled aluminum and steel pipes, and the ministry said these measures were a direct response to new US tariffs Chinese steel and aluminum.

On a trip last week from Beijing to south China, a visiting Iowa Soybean Association delegation sought to ease concerns about possible Chinese tariffs on soybeans and to emphasize shared benefits of trade.

"The issues between the US and China are not at all related to agriculture", Hays said. On Friday, Beijing released a $3 billion list of US goods targeted for possible retaliation over an earlier USA tariff hike on steel and aluminum imports.

For now, it remains unclear when or if US tariffs on Chinese imports will come into effect.

"As with overall funding trend in AI, there are far fewer deals in China in 2017 than the United States, but far greater funding", The Times reports CB Insights senior analyst Deepashri Varadharajan as saying.

In an interview aired on Sunday, Mnuchin told Fox News that he was pursuing an agreement with the Chinese "for them to open up their markets, reduce their tariffs, stop forced technology transfer".

"If a trade war were initiated by the U.S., China would fight to the end to defend its own legitimate interests with all necessary measures", the embassy stated. Why do you ask it for China? China said many countries saw no such threat for the United States, where domestic steel production covered military needs 32 times over, or more if one counted exemptions given "temporarily and likely permanently" to US allies. China imported $2.6 billion of semiconductors from the United States previous year.

"This could put US companies such as Apple, Microsoft, Starbucks, GM, Nike, etc in the firing line", Wolf said in a note.

It and four other USA allies have temporary exemptions from the tariffs. The best part about a WTO ruling is that it would affect all of China's exports, not just those to the U.S.

The steel tariffs are based on a claim to "national security", a justification that the United States says provides immunity to a legal challenge at the World Trade Organization.

"Mnuchin called Liu to congratulate him on officially entering his new role", said the spokesman from the US Treasury.

China on Monday defended its policy on banning the imports of solid waste after a USA official expressed concerns that the ban could cause a fundamental disruption in global supply chains for scrap materials.

"Even the U.S. Trade Representative's Office lists U.S. apple exports to China as one of the country's top export success stories", he continued.
