The U.S. introduced additional tariffs for the import of Chinese goods of 200 billion dollars. More than 5,000 items of goods fall under the tariffs. Among them are paper, rice and textiles. The duties entered into force on September 24. 

Recall that the US introduced a 25% duty on goods imported from China. President of the United States Donald Trump accused the PRC of stealing intellectual property and repeatedly stressed that he does not like the deficit in trade with Beijing. Then duties were raised by another $16 billion.
