Beijing vows retaliation as Trump slaps trade tariffs on China

Beijing, March 23 - In a tit-for-tat move, China on March 23 threatened the US and said it was considering higher tariffs on US agriculture and steel products after American President Donald Trump imposed trade charges of up to $60 billion on Chinese imports.

After Trump's decision on March 22, a livid China announced 15% tariff on products including fruits, nuts, wines and seamless steel tubes and a 25% tariff on pork and recycled aluminum products. 

"The measures will be implemented in two stages: in the first stage, the 15% tariff will be imposed if the two countries could not reach an agreement on trade issues within scheduled time; in the second stage, the 25% import tax will be imposed after evaluating the impact caused by the US policies," Xinhua news agency quoted the Chinese Commerce Ministry as saying.

This is an escalation of a trade war between the two countries who are the largest trading partners in the world.

Despite stern warnings by Beijing, Trump went ahead by slapping the charges.

On March 8, US had slapped tariff on Chinese steel (25%) and aluminium (10 per cent) products, with initial exemptions for Canada and Mexico.

US measures are in response to the American companies' intellectual property theft by China.
