  参考消息网8月8日报道 台媒称,美国贸易代表办公室(USTR)公布第二批对价值160亿美元中国进口商品加征关税的清单,23日起生效,使中美贸易战进一步升级。

  据台湾联合新闻网8月8日报道,USTR表示,最终清单包含了6月15日公布的284个关税项目中的279个,包括摩托车、蒸汽轮机等产品,将征收25%关税。

  报道称,这是7月以来美国第二次对中国进口商品采取关税措施,美国7月6日对价值340亿美元的中国商品加征25%的关税,北京也立即采取对等报复措施。中国政府已宣告,将对这一波涉及160亿美元商品的关税措施采取对等反击。

  报道分析称,中美贸易战的规模,很可能迅速扩大;美国贸易代表办公室正在评估对额外2000亿美元中国商品加征10%的关税,甚至考虑将税率提高到25%。在公众意见征询期9月5日结束后,这些措施即可能实施。

  报道指出,美国总统特朗普也曾暗示,可能对所有中国进口商品加征关税;去年美国从中国进口的商品总额超过5000亿美元。


Reference Cankaoxiaoxi Website reported on August 8, Taiwan media said that the US Trade Representative Office (USTR) announced the second batch of tariffs on a total value of 16 billion US dollars Chinese imports, effective on the 23rd, so that this trade war between China and America was further escalated.

According to a report by Taiwan's United News Network on August 8, USTR said that the final list includes 279 of the 284 tariff items announced on June 15, including motorcycles, steam turbines and other products, which will impose a 25% tariff.

According to the report, this is the second time since July that the United States has adopted tariff measures on Chinese imports. On July 6, the United States imposed a 25% tariff on Chinese goods valued at 34 billion U.S. dollars, and Beijing immediately adopted reciprocal retaliatory measures. The Chinese government has announced that it will take a counterattack against this wave of tariff measures involving $16 billion of American imports.

According to the report, the scale of the China-US trade war is very likely to expand rapidly; the US Trade Representative Office is assessing a 10% tariff on an additional $200 billion in Chinese goods, and even consider raising the tax rate to 25%. These measures may be implemented after the public comment period ends on September 5.

The report pointed out that the US President Trump also hinted that it may impose tariffs on all Chinese imports; last year, the United States imported more than 500 billion US dollars of goods from China.
