U.S. President Donald Trump gave instruction regarding the imposition of duties on the importation of Chinese goods into the United States by another $ 300 billion. This is reported by Reuters.

"The president also ordered the start of raising tariffs for virtually all of the remaining imports from China, which cost is estimated at $ 300 billion," said United States representative at the trade talks, Robert Lighthizer.

Earlier, at the decision of President Donald Trump, the United States raised tariffs for Chinese goods from 10% to 25% to the amount of about $ 200 billion.

Detailed information about these rates would be published on May 13.

Last year, Washington and Beijing increased the duties on each other’s goods, while the delegations of both countries were engaged in lengthy trade negotiations alternately held in two capitals. In December, Trump and PRC Chairman Xi Jinping agreed that they would not introduce new duties, but it is not yet clear how Trump’s announcement will affect negotiations that should resume in Washington on Wednesday.
