White House slaps 25% tariff on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods

The group cited research from Iowa State University economist Dermot Hayes, who estimates that US pork producers have lost $2.2 billion on an annualized basis as a result of events leading up to and following China's 25 percent punitive tariff on pork.

"If Beijing was under the impression that Trump's $50 billion of tariffs were actually on hold, they may find this confusing", Chad Bown, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, said.

"Every flip-flop and U-turn of a country will be simply depleting and squandering its own credibility", Hua said at a regular briefing.

The CM2025 project directly threatens US intellectual property rights, a conclusion that the US Trade Representative Office reached two months ago.

"The two parties can reach a deal by China increasing imports", Xing said Wednesday in a Bloomberg Television interview from Beijing. "We will definitely take forceful measures to defend our legitimate interests".

The White House accused China of placing outrageous levies and requirements on stuff exported from the States to the Middle Kingdom, for allowing Chinese organizations to rip off American technology or steal blueprints through corporate espionage, and basically for making life hard for U.S. enterprises.

There is room to increase exports to China by selling more agricultural commodities and energy products and China has agreed in principle to import more, but the two sides do not have a firm agreement.

"The Trump administration's move to impose a hefty 25 per cent tariff on the Dollars 50 billion worth of Chinese goods and tighten its noose against China's alleged theft of US" intellectual property rights will have an adverse impact on American consumers, industry leaders and lawmakers have warned. The White House said in a statement on Tuesday that a final list of imported goods to be targeted will be released by June 15, and levies imposed "shortly thereafter". "While there is inconsistency within Trump's negotiating team, China has yet to find a solution to the ongoing trade friction". On Monday, representatives of the two countries met at the WTO, where, Reuters reports, the usa said Chinese laws allow Chinese countries to demand technology-sharing from foreign firms that want to do business.

Beijing has previously pledged to retaliate against the 25 percent tariffs. He said companies hope Beijing can be persuaded to "level the playing field" by easing curbs on foreign investment and business activity in its state-dominated economy. And the investment and export control actions will be officially promulgated on June 30.

The State Department did not immediately provide comment on the report.

As Chinese companies expand overseas, the United States, Europe and other trading partners are pressing Beijing to ease curbs that keep their companies out of industries including banking, insurance, telecoms and health care.

In a weird way, though, Ross may have an edge in these negotiations.

While American business leaders have said that focusing too much on the trade deficit is not the best way for Washington to redress the imbalance, they have also called on Beijing to do more to address their grievances regarding fairness and reciprocity.
