U.S. and China Officially in a Trade War over "Unfair Trade Practices"

U.S. and China Officially in a Trade War over

On its website, it said: "China is unwilling to have a trade war, but the Chinese side has no choice but to strongly oppose this, due to the United States' myopic behaviour that will harm both parties".

"In this day and age, launching a trade war is not in the interest of the world", the statement read. Additional tariffs for 545 items worth about 34 billion U.S. dollars, including agricultural products, vehicles and aquatic products, will be effective from July 6, 2018, according to a statement of the commission.

DeLauro said the Trump Commerce Department's disorderly implementation of trade enforcement tools failed to inspire confidence in the President's ability to appropriately hold the trading partners accountable.

The tariffs will cover 1,102 Chinese product lines worth about $50 billion a year.

USA markets plunged Friday following the tariff announcement.

The headline statement from the Trump administration, found here, is that this is a direct response to years of unfair trade practices as well as IP theft that China allowed to blatantly take place. Separate measures affecting 284 products worth about $16 billion could take effect following a review and public comment process.

In April, Washington said it will impose 25 percent tariffs on 1,300 Chinese goods that are worth $50 billion. "That is why I am calling on President Trump to fight for American jobs with a comprehensive strategy that puts American economic interests front and centre", she said. About 60 percent of soybean exports go to China.

Schumer added: "While we await further details on this trade action, President Trump is right on target".

Trump outraged Canadian, Mexican and European leaders last month by imposing punishing tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum to protect American producers from allegedly unfair competition.

The ministry says it's also scrapping deals to buy more American farm goods and other exports - steps that were meant to help ease a dispute over China's trade surplus and China's technology policy.

It said: "An escalating global trade dispute or widespread rises in import tariffs would have a marked negative impact on Germany's export oriented economy".

The United States has accused China of violating World Trade Organization rules over farmer subsidies, and failing to approve biotech traits in a timely manner.

On Thursday, International Monetary Fund (IMF) director Christine Lagarde warned that the Trump administration's trade policies were likely to hurt the U.S. economy and undermine the world's trade system.
