Trump agrava guerra comercial com a China
May 10, 2019 -- O Presidente Trump agravou a sua guerra comercial com a China, fazendo subir as tarifas de 10% para 25% sobre bens no valor de $200.000 milhões. O último aumento aplica direitos a um total de $250.000m em mercadorias.
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.
