Trump preparing additional tariffs on $200B in Chinese goods
11 July, 2018, 05:11
The US has announced its plans to impose taxes on a further $200 billion worth of Chinese imports, in retaliation for China's retaliation to America's first round of tariffs.
In a statement US trade representative Robert Lighthizer said these new additional tariffs are a result of "China's retaliation and failure to change its practices" after the first round of tariffs.
The additional USA tariffs, which will go through a two-month approval process including a public hearing, come after China retaliated in a tit-for-tat trade skirmish last week.
China accused the USA of starting "the largest trade war in economic history", after the first round of tariffs took effect last week.
Trump has been considering tariffs against China since his officials concluded in March that Beijing violates USA intellectual-property rights, such as by forcing American firms to hand over technology.
"For many years, China has pursued abusive trading practices with regard to intellectual property and innovation", Mr. Lighthizer said in a statement on Tuesday.
The additional 6,031 product lines would be hit with a 10 percent tariff. China immediately retaliated with duties on the same value of USA goods, including soybeans and cars. China has vowed to retaliate dollar-for-dollar to any further U.S. tariffs.
US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said there was "no justification" for China's retaliation.
"Rather than address our legitimate concerns, China has begun to retaliate against U.S. products".
President Donald Trump last month threatened additional tariffs against China if it retaliated.
"This is where a painful situation gets more painful", said Phil Levy, a former White House economist in the George W. Bush administration.
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 also seems to be projecting confidence that it can withstand political turmoil, said David Rank, former deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing.
Trump authorized an initial $50 billion in tariffs - including the $34 billion that took effect Friday - to match those losses.
The official said the decision was not final and that the list of Chinese goods would not become final until after the public had a chance to comment. "Moreover, they will blame any economic troubles on Trump and the United States".
