China likely to retaliate to U.S. tariff increase - ING

China likely to retaliate to U.S. tariff increase - ING

While US companies complain of lost export markets, disrupted supply chains and higher costs, the US continues to see steady growth and falling unemployment. "I think there is hope", he said.

China has vowed to retaliate "in kind" if the president proceeds with the increase to 25 per cent from 10 per cent on US$200b in Chinese products. The duties apply to cargoes leaving China after 12.01 am EDT (0401 GMT) Friday.

Consumer products - including cell phones, computers, clothing and toys - are especially targeted by the tariff rate increase from 10% to 25%. The White House statement said they also had a working dinner with Liu, who is leading the Chinese side.

"They took many, many parts of that deal and they renegotiated". We can't have that.

Lawler said the best we can hope for at the end of the talks is an agreement for the sides to keep talking.

Now the trade negotiations seem to be moving farther and farther away from a resolution and an end to this current economic conflict.

In response, Biden's deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield on Twitter criticized Trump, saying USA farmers, small business owners and consumers are the ones hit by the tariff battle.

Beijing retaliated for previous tariff hikes by raising duties on $110 billion of American imports.




Trump says, "I have no idea what's going to happen". "It'll be the old-fashioned way, the way we used to do it: We made our own product".

Equity prices in the NY session today tracked the plot reversals in the trade-negotiation reality show, falling overnight when President Trump told a Florida rally that China had backtracked on earlier promises, and recovering most of their losses after Trump announced that he had received a letter from President Xi Jinping and declared that a deal still was possible. And he has renewed his threat to extend the tough tariffs to all products the U.S. imports from China. But regulators are running out of USA goods for penalties due to the lopsided trade balance. -China trade talks amid signs that negotiations were turning sour as Washington readies tariffs on Chinese goods.

Perhaps alluding to the United States' criticisms of China's intellectual property theft and ongoing negotiations that have sought to pin down an enforcement mechanism to ensure the Chinese regime curbs such theft, the editorial chastised the administration for "suppressing China's science and technology innovation".

China responded by promising to take "necessary countermeasures" if the USA implements tariffs.

Trump's recent threats have undoubtedly hurt the market with the Dow falling more than 2% this week and economists warning that US consumers will pay if the tensions continue or escalate.

"The Chinese side has kept its promises and this has never changed", he added, without specifying what measures Beijing would take but warning that it "has already prepared for all possible situations". Negotiators from both countries are scheduled to meet Thursday and Friday in Washington for an 11th round of talks aimed at reaching an agreement to ease economic tensions between the world's two biggest economies.

The talks could still go several ways, a person close to the discussions said.

"China could also delay this tariff until Vice Premier Liu He returns to China tomorrow".
