China, U.S., move closer to trade war

China, U.S.,   move closer to trade war


The risk of a trade war between the U.S. and China is rising.
China said on April 2 it was raising import duties on many U.S. products, including pork and fruit. The full list is worth $3 billion (¥318 billion).
The move came after the U.S. put higher tariffs on steel and aluminum in March.
A day after Beijing’s announcement, Washington proposed $50 billion (¥5.3 trillion) worth of tariffs on Chinese products.

米中、貿易戦争か


米中間の貿易戦争のリスクが高まっている。
中国は4月2日、豚肉や果物を含む米国からの多数の輸入品への関税引き上げを発表した。30億ドル(3,180億円)相当の米国産品が対象になる。
この動きは、米国が3月に鉄やアルミニウムの輸入品への関税を引き上げた後に起きた。

中国政府による発表の1日後に、米国は中国からの輸入品に対し、500億ドル(5.3兆円)相当の関税を課すと発表した。
