China to cancel talks if Trump moves ahead with tariffs, sources say

According to officials with knowledge of the discussions Beijing is considering declining the offer of talks as it isn't prepared to negotiate with a

China has said it will respond to the next round of USA levies with retaliatory tariffs on US$60 billion of USA goods ranging from liquefied natural gas to aircraft.

Trump administration remains open to negotiations with China, but no details on talks available.

"If the USA launches any new tariff measures, China will have to take countermeasures to firmly ensure our legitimate rights and interests", foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters during a regular press briefing on Monday. Also included as part of that product code are the HomePod, as well as AirPort and Time Capsule internet routers, and the sum total of those imports from China is reportedly around $12 billion.

President Donald Trump is barreling ahead with his vow to punish China for alleged unfair trading practices, despite an invitation this month from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to restart trade talks with Beijing.

U.S. President Donald Trump chose to begin taxing the imports - equal to almost 40 per cent of goods China sold the United States a year ago - after a public comment period.

But a fresh report published today by Bloomberg says that various high-tech items will be excluded from the final list of $200 billion worth of Chinese imports subject to the 10% tariff. Most U.S. businesses that submitted comments were opposed to punishing China with tariffs.

A senior administration official told Reuters over the weekend that Trump was likely to announce the new tariffs as early as Monday. "They want to make a deal".

Trump campaigned for the presidency on a pledge to tax imports and rewrite or tear up trade agreements that he said put USA companies and workers at a disadvantage.

Still, he said, the USA economy appears strong enough to withstand the damage. "Fortunately, the USA economy is humming, so we don't have to worry as much about what this will do to our economy".

Apple Inc. said last month the proposed duties on $200 billion cover a wide range of products used in its United States operations.USA stock futures edged lower, Asian equities slumped and European shares fluctuated amid investor concerns a heightened trade war will crimp corporate profits and undermine economic growth.

American industry has come out strongly against Trump's tariffs, saying cost increases could raise prices for consumers.

Once the new round of tariffs takes effect on September 24, punitive duties will be in place on roughly half of the products the U.S. buys from China - its largest source of imported merchandise. Some companies are looking to move out of China to dodge the tariffs, said Ted Murphy, a partner at the Baker McKenzie law firm. Some will bring operations to the United States - one of Trump's goals. "Now the calculus is more complicated".
