Trump's China tariffs could be imposed in June

What goods will be included in the tariff policy has been up for debate, but the final list will be released on June 15th.

The proposed investment restrictions and enhanced export controls will be announced by June 30 and they will be implemented shortly thereafter, it said.

The US is pushing China to remove tariffs on foreign companies and stop practices that allegedly encourage transfer of intellectual property to Chinese companies, such as requirements that foreign firms share ownership with local partners to access the Chinese market. "It is obviously against the consensus reached by the United States and China in Washington recently".

The White House also says the United States is planning new investment restrictions and export controls.

The full list of imports that will be subject to the 25% tariffs will be announced by 15 June, the White House said.

The US filed the case regarding these violations on March 23.

Mr. Trump has often talked about challenging what he has described as China's unfair trade practices, but his advisers are deeply divided over the best course for doing so.

"The United States will request that China remove all of its many trade barriers", the White House said, "including non-monetary trade barriers, which make it both hard and unfair to do business there".

Likewise, the USA will request that China remove all of its many trade barriers, including non-monetary trade barriers, which make it both hard and unfair to do business there, it said.

While the announcements eased worries about the possibility of a trade war between world's two largest economies, U.S. President Donald Trump also said last week that any deal between Washington and Beijing would need "a different structure", fueling uncertainty over the talks.

The US will request that tariffs and taxes between the two countries be reciprocal in nature and value. Meanwhile, China has warned of equal retaliation, including duties on some of its most significant USA imports, like aircraft, soybeans and vehicles.

In a statement Tuesday, a spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Commerce took a subtle dig at Trump's constant back-and-forth on trade issues.

In retaliation, China announced plans to impose new tariffs of 25 per cent worth Dollars 50 billion on 106 American products including items like soybeans which could hurt American farmers.
