Chinese exports accelerate as USA prepares new tariffs in heated row

Chinese exports accelerate as USA prepares new tariffs in heated row

After Liu visited Washington later that month, the nations released a joint statement pledging to reduce the USA trade deficit with China, among other things.

Those demands could get even more strident if the yuan's sharp drop in recent months raises the ire of the United States, which has in the past repeatedly criticized Beijing for manipulating its currency to gain an unfair trade advantage.

"There is no off-ramp, and Trump has given China little wiggle room to save face and come to the bargaining table", he said.

The office said the move is part of the USA response to China's unfair trade practices related to the forced transfer of American technology and intellectual property.

"Currency devaluation, which may have helped exports to some extent, has been largely market-driven in our view and is not a preferred policy tool by Chinese policy makers as part of the retaliation measures", Wang said.

All of this adds up to range bound trade over the near-term.

Wednesday's data also revealed a more balanced trade picture, with China's imports jumping 20.9 percent to reach 1.21 trillion yuan in July. With higher oil prices this year and the taxes they now can't avoid paying, the teapots are expected to reduce their imports, threatening China's oil demand growth, and ultimately, global oil demand growth.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the country exported $10.2 billion in new and used passenger cars to China in 2017.

USTR is conducting a public comment period for those tariffs, which could reach 25 percent, due to end September 5.

Such practices include rules compelling companies in certain sectors to take on local partners if they want to do business in China.

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce announced a 25 percent charge on $16 billion worth of USA goods including coal, grease, Vaseline, asphalt and plastic products, and recyclables.

"Although this may for a moment bring preening with delight, it will make it hard to resolve economic imbalances or out of kilter politics and other deep-rooted problems".

The US announced earlier this week that its own tariffs on US$16 billion of Chinese goods would start on Aug.23.

May 29: The White House announces the tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese goodswill move forward, with the final list of goods released June 15.

April 4: China rolls out a listof more than 100 U.S. goods worth roughly $50 billion that are subject to retaliatory tariffs.
