China reserves right to retaliate for U.S. investment curbs

03 June 2018

Trump's trade agenda - at least lately - has not been so easy.

On May 30, China's commerce ministry said the usa trade delegation had arrived in Beijing and teams from both countries would discuss coming up with a consensus over the next few days.

The additional tariffs will have an impact on agriculture, but the extent of the fallout will depend on how things play out in trade talks between the two countries this week in Beijing, he said.

US President Donald Trump is concerned about China's unfair trade practices and striving to stop Beijing from such practices and theft of American intellectual property, the White House said on May 31. The White House is also expected to release new investment restrictions on Chinese acquisitions of US technology by the beginning of July.

"There's still a risk that this escalates into a trade war", Levy said.

"If the U.S. insists on acting arbitrarily and recklessly, China will take firm and powerful measures to safeguard its own legitimate rights", Hua said. "So, I think the US used to have a lot of leverage, now the USA doesn't have a lot of leverage".

Furthermore, the person said, the U.S.is expected to count US$361 million in civil penalties that ZTE paid the Commerce Department previous year in its US$1.7 billion figure, even though that penalty was already collected as part of the US$892 million.

The government would not back down on the new tax rules, which would raise AU$300 million a year, Morrison said. The Australian site has more than 60 million products across 23 categories, including toys, books and clothing.

He said it appears the president is reacting to negative press about the deal and its lack of details as well his administration's controversial decision to spare Chinese telecommunications company ZTE from penalties that China said would put it out of business.

But the talks are running into the complications of Mexican elections in July and the USA midterm elections in November along with a dispute over rules for vehicle production. The potential penalties could affect Mexico, Canada, Japan and the European Union. Well, now the White House is pressing ahead and adding new pressure on China.

Among those actions was the threat of new tariffs.

When not coaxing North Korean leader Kim Jong-un into a landmark nuclear disarmament summit, Trump has admiringly called Chinese leader Xi Jinping a "world class poker player" amid their own trade dispute.

The back and forth on tariff threats with China has left USA agriculture in a tenuous wait-and-see position. "That's a very important element", Trump said.

Trump's onslaught on Washington's allies has been all the more disorientating as he turns on the charm with a string of authoritarian states long seen as U.S. rivals. But in the end, it will work out.
