The commerce ministry on Friday unveiled a plan to levy additional duties on up to $3 billion of USA imports including fruit and wine, in response to US import tariffs on steel and aluminum.
That means measures that will hurt Trump politically rather than inflict more damage on the global economy. While we look forward to providing our feedback on the options the administration has outlined, we remain concerned with the administration's focus on tariffs. "They will strategically go after important industries, important companies, important trade groups so that their representatives in Washington raise hell". "Second, it is overestimating its ability to adjust worldwide trade in the market economy's private sectors, as well as its advantage in a trade war with China", the paper declared.

"The scale of the trade war would be broadened".
In all the completed cases, with one exception where a complaint was not pursued, China's response was to take some action to move towards greater access. They would be hit with a 15 percent tariff increase, mirroring the US duty hike of 15 percent on aluminum. "I think it is driven by growing antagonism toward China on every front (economic, North Korea, South China Sea, influence ops, etc.) here in the U.S. This antagonism toward China makes actions more favorable to Taiwan more attractive for U.S. policymakers".
Washington is also pressing China to reduce its staggering $375 billion trade surplus with the United States by $100 billion. Most Taiwanese oppose unifying with mainland China.
Neither China's Foreign nor Defence Ministries immediately responded to a request for comment. Trump says Beijing has forced US firms to transfer their intellectual property to China as a cost of doing business there. The trick, he said, is not to hurt US companies, workers and families.
