Trump intensifica la guerra comercial EUA-China
May 10, 2019 -- El presidente Trump intensificó su guerra comercial con China al elevar de 10% a 25% los aranceles a bienes chinos con valor de $200.000m. El aumento más reciente extiende el impuesto de 25% a un total de $250.000m de importaciones chinas.
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.
