President of the United States Donald Trump, in a conversation with journalists, said that the preparation for the introduction of previously announced duties on the volume of Chinese imports worth $200 billion was coming to an end, and he was ready to introduce additional duties on Chinese goods worth $267 billion, Bloomberg reports. Previously, the US authorities have already imposed duties on Chinese products in the amount of $50 billion a year. Considering that in 2017, goods worth $505 billion 600 million were delivered from China to the United States, then, taking into account the forthcoming new duties, tax will be put on all the Chinese imports.
