China Slates US Unilateralism And Protectionism After Tariff Move

The U.S.is confronting China as it picks battles on other trade fronts with some of its closest allies.

After briefing reporters on the administration's decision to slap tariffs on imported steel from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, Ross arrived in Beijing for negotiations aimed at resolving a dispute over China's aggressive attempts to challenge USA technological supremacy.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said last week that China was a long-term and responsible investor in the euro and hoped the currency would be strong and steady, in spite of the occasional sovereign debt crisis in Europe.

Following Beijing's announcement, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the dispute was "on hold".

The appeal came ahead of planned weekend talks with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on USA pressure to narrow China's multibillion-dollar trade surplus with the United States. But on Wednesday, Trump reversed and signaled that he still planned to impose $50 million in tariffs on Chinese imports. Ben Sasse of Nebraska.

The organization is hopeful the trade talks will go well and result in the resolution of long-running issues, he said.

"There's plenty going on", Dave Salmonsen, senior director of congressional relations for American Farm Bureau Federation, told Capital Press.
