In the near future, the United States may impose a 25% tariff on $16 billion of imports from China. On August 2, the United States announced that it would raise the tax rate on 200 billion US dollars of Chinese products exported to the United States from 10% to 25%.
On August 3, the Office of the Tariff and Tax Commission of the State Council issued a notice saying that China was forced to take countermeasures against the unilateral escalation of trade frictions by the United States. With the approval of the State Council, the Tariff and Tax Commission of the State Council decided to impose tariffs of 25%, 20%, 10% and 5% on 5207 items of goods originating in the United States of America, amounting to about $60 billion.
