The world's second-largest economy also aims to create a more attractive investment environment and strengthen intellectual property rights - the grounds on which the USA has proposed punitive tariffs on Chinese imports.

"The market is now concerned for the escalating China-US trade war tensions". China will take down its Trade Barriers because it is the right thing to do.

Foreign business groups welcomed Xi's commitment to reforms, including promises to strengthen legal deterrence on intellectual property violators, but said the speech fell short on specifics.

"I think it's so clearly in the interest of both countries that we have a constructive trading relationship and that we have substantive talks to redress these issues".

On Tuesday, Washington unveiled some $50 billion worth of proposed tariffs on Chinese imports and on Thursday Trump upped the ante, directing US trade officials to identify tariffs on another $100 billion of Chinese imports.

Earlier this month, Beijing imposed tariffs on 128 American products worth around $3 billion in response to the U.S. imposing duties on steel and aluminium imports from China as part of Trump's "America First" policy.

"We hope developed countries will stop imposing restrictions on normal and reasonable trade of hi-tech products and relax export controls on such trade with China", he said. "When a auto is sent to China from the United States, there is a Tariff to be paid of 25%", the president wrote on Twitter.

U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., told Fox News Sunday he doesn't oppose tariffs on China, but Trump's approach looks like "chaos", and has "left a lot of Americans with uncertainty".

In a separate interview on "Fox News Sunday", Kudlow acknowledged "jitters" but insisted "we're not gonna to end up in a trade war".

"China will safeguard the principles of free trade and oppose protectionism", Wang said. But he predicted that the USA may prevail because the Chinese need American goods more than the other way around.

"In the world's perception, the U.S.is overshadowed by an anxiety disorder and is very keen to show its anxiety", the newspaper said.

"We are not in a trade war with China, that war was lost many years ago by the foolish, or incompetent, people who represented the U.S.", he wrote on Twitter.

"Chinese cheating has cost American jobs and I applaud the administration for standing firm in its commitment to crack down on China's continued violations", said Sen. "Even so, with Xi's speech positioning China as conciliatory, the chances of a damaging trade war appear a shade lower". His speech did not specifically mention the United States or its trade policies, which have been assailed by Chinese state media in recent days. The U.S. has asked the country to reduce its trade surplus by $100 billion, cut tariffs on cars and stop forced technology transfers by foreign corporations, among other things. "We're moving forward in a measured way", he said on NBC's "Meet the Press". In the period of 2016 to 2017, China produced only about 12.9 million tons of soybeans, compared to its imported total of 96.1 million tons, according to data from the Agricultural Market Information System, an online database launched by the ministries of agriculture among the G20 nations.

In another tweet on Saturday, Trump again claimed unfair Chinese trade practices.
