China has announced that it will begin to impose 25pc duty on the extra $16 billion (€13.8 billion) of us goods immediately after we the fees become effective, making good on its promise to repay the same.

Customs will begin collecting duties on products from 12.01 AM on 23 August, the Finance Ministry said in a statement on its website yesterday.

The US announced earlier this week that its rates to $16 billion of Chinese goods will be run that day. The Chinese list covers coal, oil, chemical industry and medical equipment.

The US imposed duties on 25pcs $34 billion in goods from China on July 6, prompting a swift kind of response on the part of Beijing.

In the near future may increase. U.S. trade representative revises tariffs on an additional $200 billion in Chinese imports, and these duties may begin once the consultation period ends on 6 September. In response China has threatened to 25pcs tariffs on $60 billion in American imports.

While tensions in trade relations being reinforced, a positive trade balance of China with the United States accounted for 28.1 $billion in July, near record high in June, data released yesterday showed.

China’s exports grew faster than expected, and imports rose sharply, showing both domestic and international demand still managed to shrug off the uncertainty of the trade conflict.

Exports rose 12.2 PC in July in dollar terms compared with a year earlier, the customs administration said, faster than the 10pc forecast.

Imports increased by 27.3 PC, leaving a trade surplus of 28 billion us dollars.

As the world’s largest exporter, China continued to enjoy steady global demand, but increases the tension and the growth of trade barriers does not affect the prognosis.

“Higher-than-expected imports was due to energy prices, which narrowed the trade balance,” said iris pang, greater China economist at ING wholesale banking in Hong Kong.

“The impact of customs tariffs on exports are not yet reflected. We will see a full month at the rates in force in August”.

At the same time, China’s economy is showing signs of weakness, the yuan was at a loss for more than a month, the stock market has undergone reduction, and other early indicators point to a slowdown.

The Central Bank has made it more expensive to bet against the yuan in an attempt to ease the pressure on the national currency.

“Looking forward to… the prospects of China’s exports grim view of the escalation of trade wars,” said Chang Shu and Fielding Chen, Bloomberg the economy.

“We believe that exports will slow economic growth” and support policies will be intensified”. (Bloomberg)
