China won’t give in to extreme pressure by the United States on tariffs and will firml
y defend its core interests, as it has sufficient countermeasures available, experts said.300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信
The reaction came after the Ministry of Commerce expressed strong opposition on Saturday
300元微信红包群无押金419to a new threat of additional tariffs by the US on about $550 billion worth of Chinese imports. The ministry urge
d Washington to reverse course immediately or be prepared to “bear all the consequences”.
The fresh retaliatory threat by the US violates the consensus reached between the count300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信
ries’ top leaders and severely undermines the multilateral trading system and normal international trade o
rder, the ministry said, adding that Washington will eat the bitter fruit of its own actions.
300元微信红包群无押金419Gu Xueming, head of the ministry’s Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation, said none of the ex
treme pressure tactics and intimidation by the US will work with China, which will unswervingly protect itself.
In the future, the country’s countermeasures will be more rational, firmer and more powerful, Gu said at a seminar in Beijing on Sunday.300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信
Noting that cooperation is the only correct choice, Gu said he hoped the US will see the situation clearly, give up its illu
sions and resolve its differences with China under the principle of mu300元微信红包群无押金419
tual benefit and respect. Any agreement must be acceptable to both sides, Gu said.
Bai Ming, a senior researcher at the acad
300元微信红包群无押金419emy, said China has sufficient tools in its toolbox to use to counter the US adm
inistration’s unilateral tariff actions. The “quality” of the tools matters most, he said.
On Friday, the US administration said it will hike duties on $250 billion worth of Chinese300元微信红包群无押金419
goods from the current 25 percent to 30 percent beginning on Oct 1, and the re
maining imports of $300 billion from the previously planned 10 percent to 15 percent on Sept 1.
The move followed Beijing’s plan on Thursday to raise300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信
tariffs on $75 billion worth of US goods in a response to the US side’s planned levies on a
n additional $300 billion worth of Chinese imports, announced earlier this month.

The operator had also provided additional buses to ferry passengers between the remote bay300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信

“This is to ease the flow of passengers at the gates affected by the dela300元微信红包群无押金419

The latest report by International Monetary Fund (IMF) conclude
300元微信红包群无押金419d that the exchange rate of the Chinese yuan was “broadly in line with medium-term f
undamentals”, and the Chinese monetary authority barely intervened in the foreign exchange market.300元微信红包群无押金419
The report, released late Friday in Washington, was a blow to the lab
eling of China as “a currency manipulator” by the US administration, experts said.
The value of the Chinese currency and the country’s external position i
300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信n 2018 were “broadly in line with the level consistent with medium-term fun
damentals and desirable policies,” the report said, citing that China’s current account surplus fell by around 1 pe
rcentage point to 0.4 percent of GDP in 2018 and is projected to remain contained at 0.5 percent of GDP in 2019.
Estimates showed that the People’s Bank of China, the country’s central ban300元微信红包群无押金419
k, has had “little FX intervention”, said the report, which is based on IMF’s latest Ar
ticle IV consultation with China, a review of the Chinese economy that concluded on July 31.
300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信The IMF’s conclusion came in just four days after the US Treasury officially la
beled China as a “currency manipulator” on Monday. The Chinese yuan
weakened to beyond 7 per dollar for the first time in more than a decade earlier this week.300元微信红包群无押金419
“The IMF conclusion is objective and reflected that the renminbi was assessed to be broadly
in line with medium-term fundamentals. The result kept pace with what it said in July,” said Zhang Xiaohui, a s
300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信enior researcher of the China Finance 40 Forum (CF40), and former assistant governor of the PBOC.
What the IMF concluded is a just decision, reflecting that the US labeling simply doesn’t hold water, according to Yu Yo
ngding, a senior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and a consultant of CF40.
hina will not revise its foreign exchange policies, as the United States labeling it “a currency manipulator” is unre
?300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信asonable and unlikely to get support from multilateral mechanisms, according to Chinese officials and analysts.
Based on available facts and evidence, it is unlikely that the International Monetary Fund — the most authoritative organization to arbitrate currency ma
nipulation — will stand by the US in accusing China of being a currency manipulator, they said. Without such suppo?300元微信红包群无押金419
rt from the multilateral organization, the US accusation will not hold up, they added.
?300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信An IMF spokesperson told China Daily on Thursday that “discussions
with the US Treasury Department are ongoing on a range of issues”. The “range of issues” is not c
onfined to the currency manipulation accusation, the spokesperson added.
The IMF had not yet sent a message requiring Beijing to start related negotiation?300元微信红包群无押金419
s regarding the accusation, two Chinese officials familiar with the matter told China Daily. The Chinese govern
?300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信ment maintains routine coordination and communication with the IMF, said the officials, on condition of anonymity.
The US Treasury Department wrote in a statement on Monday that it will engage with the IMF “to
eliminate the unfair competitive advantage created by China’s latest actions”. Hours before the US annou?300元微信红包群无押金419
ncement, the renminbi weakened beyond 7 per dollar for the first time since May 2008. Washington threatened earlier to sl
ap 10 percent tariffs on an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods beginning on Sept 1.
?300元微信红包群无押金419品茶微信Li Chao, vice-chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, said it is
“irresponsible” for the US administration to label China as “a currency manipulator”, as it not only viol
ates rules and common sense, but also causes damage to the US itself and stock markets of other economies.?300元微信红包群无押金419
“(The US labeling) triggered drastic fluctuations across g

The results were disclosed at a news conference on Monday at the State Council Information Office.
