China Matches US Tariffs with Levy on Additional US$16 Billion of Imports

China is to impose import surcharges of 25% on an additional 333 categories of US-origin goods as of 23 August. With a total value estimated at around US$16 billion, the goods affected include certain automobiles, medical equipment and several chemical/energy products.

This latest round of tariff hikes marks the continuing escalation of the tit-for-tat trade war initiated by the US. At present, the two sides have both taken action against $50 billion worth of each other’s exports.
