China will hit $50 billion in goods starting August 23, the government announced Tuesday. More tariffs are planned, including duties of 25pc on an additional $16bn of Chinese goods that the United States will impose in a fortnight.

The United States and China implemented tariffs on $34billion worth of each other's goods in July.

Mr. Trump has continued to portray tariffs on foreign imports as good for the country, even as many Republicans and traditionally right-of-center groups preach their ills. The tariffs will come into effect simultaneously with the USA ones, at 12.01 pm in Beijing, according to the statements. Chinese imports of goods and services into the United States previous year amounted to almost $524 billion.


"This is a very unreasonable practice", the Chinese commerce ministry said of the USA action on Wednesday as it rolled out China's counter-tariffs.

U.S. president Donald Trump has threatened to target all $500bn of Chinese imports. US Customs will begin collecting duties on 279 product lines ranging from motorcycles to steam turbines and railway cars, the US Trade Representative's Office said in an emailed statement on Tuesday.

Trump has threatened to levy a 25% tariff on an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to the U.S. - a move that would blow open the disagreement between the countries.

On July 6, the USA began taxing the 818 goods, worth $34 billion, remaining from the April list.


"We're in a little bit of a fight with China right now", Trump said, before adding that the two nations would end up with a "fantastic trading relationship". But it held off on a final $16 billion as a result of concerns raised by USA companies.

Of more direct effect in the Sino-U.S. trade war, China's surplus with the United States shrank only marginally to $28.09 billion last month from a record $28.97 billion in June.

China's payback presents its own challenges. But it was 11 percent higher than in the same month a year ago.
