Chinese goods subject to additional 25 percent tariffs      [2018-04-04]

The Office of US Trade Representative on Tuesday published a proposed list of Chinese goods subject to additional 25 percent tariffs amid strong opposition from China and US business groups.


The proposed list covers approximately 1,300 products imported from China, including industries such as aerospace, information and communication technology, robotics, and machinery, the USTR's Office said in a statement, noting they're worth approximately US$50 billion of annual trade value.


China has stressed that it's ready to take any necessary measures to defend its legitimate interests, while hoping to properly handle the trade dispute with the United States through dialogue and consultation.


The proposed tariff list is based on a Section 301 investigation into alleged Chinese intellectual property and technology transfer practices, launched by the Trump administration in August 2017.


Now it will undergo further review in a public notice and comment process, including a hearing, before the USTR issues a final determination on the Chinese products subject to additional tariffs, according to the USTR's Office.
