Trump eskaliert Handelskrieg mit China

Graphic News

May 10, 2019 -- Präsident Trump lasst den Handelskrieg mit China eskalieren, er erhöht Zölle auf chinesische Waren im Wert von $200 Milliarden von 10% auf 25%. Die letzte Erhöhung auf 25% Zoll betrifft Importe aus China im Wert von $250 Milliarden.

China’s Commerce Ministry said it would impose “necessary countermeasures” but gave no details. Beijing retaliated for previous tariff hikes by raising duties on $110 billion of American imports.

The higher tariffs don’t apply to Chinese goods shipped before May 10. Shipments across the Pacific will take about three weeks before importers have to pay the increased charges. More than 5,700 product categories are affected.

Importers absorbed the earlier 10 per cent tariffs, but the latest U.S. increase is expected to be passed on to American consumers.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
