China to put 25% tariffs on $16 billion worth of United States products
08 August, 2018, 18:28 | Author: Lucy Floyd
The dispute has continued to escalate, as Trump last week threatened to jack up the tariff rate on the next $200 billion in Chinese imports his administration plans to target to 25 percent, from the planned 10 percent.
The latest charge comes after the US said it would implement another round of tariffs on $16 billion worth of Chinese goods.
The new set of measures are the second tranche of tariffs that President Donald Trump originally announced in March, following tariffs imposed on $34 billion worth of Chinese imports that went into effect in early July. They will take effect on August 23.
China's latest tariffs will be implemented on August 23, in tandem with the U.S.
The Office United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced the tariffs in a statement released on Tuesday afternoon US time.

The US is now considering tariffs on another $200bn in goods, including consumer products that were spared duties in the initial $50bn round.

All in all, China's trade surplus with the U.S. shrank to $28.08 billion in July against $28.97 billion in the previous month.
Although the move was expected, it solidifies the view that there appears to be no effort underway to defuse the dispute between the world's two largest economies.
Mr Trump has said he would be willing to hit all of China's imports with duties.
All China's main state newspapers published a lengthy commentary by the official Xinhua news agency, entitled "declaration", on their front pages.
