China says it will hit back at USA for ‘completely unacceptable’ tariffs

What Is the Endgame for the Trump Trade Wars?

It includes fruit and vegetables, handbags, refrigerators, rain jackets and baseball gloves.

The global tally for retaliation against U.S. exports, including by Canada, Mexico and the European Union over steel and aluminum tariffs, will be some $75 billion, according to an analysis by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Beijing immediately responded with its own tariffs on USA goods worth $34 billion.

The list is subject to two months of finalization and input before possible implementation by President Donald Trump.

The tariffs could take effect after public consultations end on August 30, according to a statement from the U.S. Trade Representative's office Tuesday.

China's imports of US goods are so small that Beijing "cannot match fresh USA tariffs", said Vishnu Varathan of Mizuho Bank in a report.

Yu said China can also buy more rapeseed, sunflower seeds, and bring in more soybean meal, rapeseed meal, sunflower meal and fishmeal to fill any supply gaps.

Trump has recently introduced tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese products and, while hundreds of products have been affected, certain goods were conveniently spared from this enactment - including the products made for Ivanka's internationally manufactured fashion brand. No financial details of the agreement signed Tuesday were announced, but construction is expected to start as soon as official permits come through.

"The Chinese side is shocked by the actions of the U.S.", it said in a statement, according to a translation by Google. "There is no justification for such action".

"Special Report" panel reacts to the strategy behind the Trump administration's new charges on Chinese products.

He added: "Companies in both countries will suffer losses".

The policy is a top concern for USA officials. There are fears that Beijing could attempt to disrupt operations of American automakers, retailers and others that see China as a key market.

However, Stockman said the big problem of trade imbalance is not a result of bad trade deals. But the new tariffs will not be imposed until later this summer, after a public comment period.

Mr Trump has threatened to tax $550bn (£415bn) in Chinese products - exceeding America's total imports from China a year ago.

President Trump has escalated America's trade dispute with Beijing, ordering officials to impose tariffs on thousands more Chinese products worth $200 billion.

Tuesday's announcement was met with backlash from some quarters.

The move drew immediate condemnation from Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah, who called it "reckless" and not "targeted". US officials insist China's retaliatory tariffs are unjustified.

The National Retail Federation, an industry group, warned about the impact on prices from the new measures.

"Tariffs are taxes, plain and simple".

Even more tariffs could be on the way. Tesla is among companies hit by an additional 25 percent in import duties, imposed by Beijing in retaliation to a tariff hike by the Trump administration. He has not formally directed Lighthizer to prepare that list.
