China Files Complaint to WTO Over New US Measures

"Country was built on Tariffs, and Tariffs are now leading us to great new Trade Deals - as opposed to the terrible and unfair Trade Deals that I inherited as your President", Mr. Trump tweeted.

Previously, the United States took safeguard measures on imports of some photovoltaic products with additional tariffs of up to 30 percent. It has tried to recruit European governments and other governments as allies against Washington.

The U.S. measures are suspected of violating WTO Agreement on Safeguards.

WTO complaints begin with negotiations between parties to the dispute.

Earlier, Beijing filed a separate WTO challenge on July 16 to Trump's proposal for yet another round of increases that would add 25 percent import duties on an additional $200 billion of Chinese goods. Mexico's economy minister, Ildefonso Guajardo, said the tariffs will affect some 3 billion dollars in value terms.

But many have speculated that the affects could cause significant harm to USA industries.

On July 6, US tariffs on 34 billion dollars of Chinese goods came into force, and China responded by enacting tariffs on 34 billion dollars of goods it buys from the United States.

-Asked what Beijing should do in response to Trump's punitive tariffs, 19 (or 38 percent) said that it should strike back hard.

On Aug. 1, Trump called for raising the proposed tariff on 200 billion dollars of Chinese goods from 10 percent to 25 percent, adding the implementation is pending a public comment process ending on September 5.

After the application of these first taxes, China responded with a package of tariff countermeasures of equal weight to products of the North American nation.

The Commerce Ministry said Wednesday the 30 percent tariffs announced in January violate WTO rules and improperly help US producers.
