  • We are ready for trade war – China tells Donald Trump



    China, the world’s second biggest economy fuelled fears of a trade war when it warned Sunday that it is ready to hit back at the United States if it harms its economic interests.

    It was China’s first response since President Donald Trump unveiled steel and aluminium tariffs.
    Trump’s announcement on Thursday sparked a flurry of counter-threats from other nations but its main trade rival, China, had avoided any overt warnings of potential retaliation until now.

    “China doesn’t want a trade war with the United States,” Zhang Yesui, spokesman for the National People’s Congress, told a news conference on Sunday, the eve of the rubber-stamp parliament’s annual session.

    “But if the US takes actions that hurt Chinese interests, China will not sit idly by and will take necessary measures.”
    Zhang warned that “policies informed by misjudgement or wrong perceptions will hurt relations and bring consequences no side wants to see”.
    Trump’s announcement came as President Xi Jinping’s top economic aide, Liu He, met with US officials at the White House this week to discuss the fraught economic relationship.

    During his visit, according to the official Xinhua news agency, Liu and his hosts “agreed that the two countries should settle their trade disputes by cooperation rather than confrontation”.

    Since announcing plans to impose a 25 percent tariff on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminium, Trump has shrugged off threats from other nations, boasting on Friday that “trade wars are good, and easy to win”.

    China has been the main target of Trump’s ire over the US trade deficit since his presidential campaign, but its steel and aluminium exports to the United States are minimal.
    While China is the world’s largest steel producer, it accounts for less than one percent of US imports and sells only 10 percent of its wrought aluminium abroad.
    Steel producers in Canada, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea and Turkey rely far more heavily on the US market.

    “The American action to put sanctions on other countries’ reasonable steel and aluminium exports in the name of harming national security is groundless,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Saturday.

    Some US allies, like Canada and Australia, had hoped to be spared the tariffs. A US official said Friday no countries will be exempt, but added that possible exemptions to the measures would be considered on a case-by-case basis.

    Australia warned that a trade conflict could put the brakes on global economic growth.
    “That’s what concerns me, if we continue to see an escalation of rhetoric and, ultimately, action around tariffs applying for imports and exports across multiple economies… this will lead to a slow-down in growth,” trade minister Steve Ciobo told Sky News Australia Sunday.

    Trump ratched up the rhetoric on Saturday, threatening a tax on cars from the European Union if it enacts retaliatory measures.
    On Friday, European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said the EU was drawing up measures against leading US brands such as Levi’s and Harley-Davidson.
