Damaged Legitimate Interests: China Blasts US Tariffs On Solar Panels

Of course, tariffs have been a mainstay in Canadian headlines for the past several months, with Trump levying duties on us imports of Canadian steel and aluminum.

China has blasted U.S. tariffs on solar panel imports, filing a complaint at the World Trade Organization in the latest salvo of the trade battle between the world's two economic giants.

Beijing said the United States measures are suspected of violating trade rules and that it would turn to the WTO's dispute resolution mechanism to protect its interests. "I think China chose to bring it up in order to keep up the rhythm of the trade dispute", he said.

WTO complaints begin with negotiations between parties to the dispute.

On June 5, Mexico imposed taxes - with immediate effect - on USA steel and aluminum, pork belly, as well as a range of other agricultural products.

The United States and China have slapped tit-for-tat tariffs on tens of billions of dollars worth of goods from each country, with another round of levies scheduled to being next week. One Chinese executive told Reuters that USA solar tariffs were a "sideshow" and had little effect on Chinese business. The president has also said the tariffs have been created to promote better trade deals.

China lodged its challenge at the WTO on Tuesday, the statement said.

On Aug. 1, Trump called for raising the proposed tariff on 200 billion dollars of Chinese goods from 10 percent to 25 percent, adding the implementation is pending a public comment process ending on September 5.

The Trump administration in January announced it was imposing "Safeguard tariffs" over four years, with a 30 percent tariff in the first year reduced gradually to 15 percent in year four.

After the application of these first taxes, China responded with a package of tariff countermeasures of equal weight to products of the North American nation.
