The dispute has continued to escalate as the sides exchange threats, and Trump last week threatened to jack up the tariff rate on the next $200 billion in Chinese imports it plans to target to 25 percent, from the planned 10 percent. Year-on-year, the growth of China's exports to the United States slowed to 11 percent last month from 12.5 percent in June, while import growth accelerated to 11 percent from 9 percent. Since then, Washington and Beijing have raised the stakes by threatening more punitive trade measures in an intensifying dispute that has rattled financial markets anxious about the impact on investment and growth.
Trump's mission to reduce the U.S. trade deficit via the threat of tariffs has brought him into conflict with China as well as USA allies, roiling financial markets and raising fears of a global trade war the International Monetary Fund has warned may undermine the strongest economic upswing in years.

"We expect export growth to cool in the coming months, though this will primarily reflect softer global growth rather than United States tariffs, the direct impact of which will continue to be mostly offset by the renminbi's (yuan's) recent depreciation".

President Donald Trump has suggested he may tax effectively all imports of Chinese goods, which reached more than $500 billion past year. Beijing is expected to hit $16 billion worth of USA goods with equal tariffs in response to Tuesday's move.
