Who the USA and China have trade disputes with

Europe rejects China’s offer of alliance in trade war with United States

China's Commerce Ministry accused the United States of "bullying" and igniting "the largest trade war in economic history".

Trump also said the U.S. is ready to target an additional $200bn in Chinese imports - and then $300bn more - if Beijing does not yield to United States demands and continues to retaliate. This prompted Beijing to respond in kind with levy tariffs on 545 items of US imports, including agricultural products, vehicles and aquatic goods - also worth $34 billion, state-run newspaper The China Daily reported Friday.

Bangladesh might lose its export in United States market if the trade war changed the spending habit of USA consumers due to increased price of products, he pointed out.

"Its unruliness looks set to have a profoundly damaging impact on the global economic landscape in the coming decades, unless countries stand together to oppose it".

"The real question is, how long do we stay in the trade war?" said Mr Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Spartan Capital Securities in NY.

So you don't think these USA tariffs and Chinese counter tariffs today are here to stay?

For instance, China's 25% retaliatory duty on whiskey could harm the United States producers, according to the Distilled Spirits Council.

"Companies don't know how big this may get, or how it will end".

Ford earlier this week said that for now, it will not hike prices of imported Ford and higher-margin luxury Lincoln models in China.

U.S. President Donald Trump has also said he is prepared to levy duties on additional Chinese goods worth 200 billion dollars if China retaliates, a threat condemned by Shay, who urged Trump to pull the brake on the escalating hostilities.

"Clearly the first salvos have been exchanged and in that sense, the trade war has started", said Louis Kuijs, chief Asia economist at Oxford Economics. Imaging vendors ship complete systems back to the USA for sale, or send subsystems made in China back to the US for integration into finished products.

"This is not economic Armageddon".

In this context, the trade face-off smacks of a struggle between the G2 countries for economic hegemony over the global market.

Beijing is also taking a hard-line stance, vowing never to surrender to Washington as far as the trade issue is concerned.

The Chinese government said Friday it "immediately" retaliated against increased US tariffs on Chinese imports as President Donald Trump's administration effectively launched a trade war with its most important trading partner.

The U.S. has imposed 25 per cent duties on $34 billion USA in Chinese products.

The lists of goods to be hit by tariffs have been updated several times by both administrations. But some products, including thermostats, are lumped into intermediate and capital goods categories.

"A trade war is the last thing we want to see, because we said many times that no one will benefit from a trade war", said Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang.

This trade war will hit American agricultural exports such as pork and soybean hard, but if President Trump ups the ante, products like televisions and other household goods could also be hit, meaning consumers will face higher prices, Matthew Shay, president of the National Retail Federation, told the Associated Press.
