hina deeply disappointed by US tariff planpointm

hina voiced deep disappointment late on Wednesday about Washington’s plan to raise tariffs on Chinese imports on Fr

iday, saying that it will take necessary counter-measures if the US tariffs increase takes effect.

The planned tariffs increase on $200 billion worth of Chinese

imports from 10 percent to 25 percent was filed by the Office of the US Trade Representative, and

the filing appeared on Wednesday in the Federal Register, the Associated Press reported.

In response, an unnamed spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce said in a statement on the ministry’s website that escal

ating trade friction does not serve the interests of people in the two countries and the world.

Major US trade bodies have urged the Trump administration to avoid further escalating tensions by suddenly incr

easing tariffs on Friday, while experts said it’s sensible for China to continue negotiations in a measured way.

rkets and attract global long-term capital to enter China’s financial markets,” it said.
