China to Respond to Tariffs With Retaliatory Measures on US Goods

(Yicai Global) Sept. 18 -- China will levy retaliatory tariffs simultaneously with the US on American imports in response to Washington's latest announced round of tariffs, China's Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) said in a statement on Tuesday.

The remarks were made after US President Donald Trump on Tuesday announced additional tariffs on roughly 200 billion US dollars' worth of imports from China.

The US tariffs will take effect from September 24, 2018, and be set at a level of 10 percent until the end of the year. From January 1, 2019, the tariffs will rise to 25 percent.
