Trump laat handelsoorlog VS-China escaleren

May 10, 2019 -- President Trump laat zijn handelsoorlog met China escaleren met de tariefsverhoging van 10% naar 25% op $200 miljard aan Chinese goederen. Daarmee komt het totaal aan met 25% belaste Chinese import op $250 mrd.

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 @ graphicnews.com
