US President Donald Trump started announcing new tariffs on imports in January as part of an attempt to negotiate what he called "fair, bilateral trade deals that bring jobs and industry back onto American shores".

Beijing is expected to hit $16 billion worth of U.S. goods with equal tariffs in response to Tuesday's move. Over the weekend, Trump told a rally he holds the advantage over China, adding playing hardball on trade is "my thing".
The new list covers products such as semiconductors, electronics, plastics, and railway equipment.

Announcing the new duties, the US Trade Representatives Office: "China directs and unfairly facilitates the systematic investment in, and acquisition of, US companies and assets to generate large-scale technology transfer".
China's exports to the United States rose 13.3 percent in the first seven months of 2018 from a year earlier, compared with a 13.5 percent rise in Jan-June.
