China exporters react to Donald Trump’s new trade war tariff plan: ‘This will kill my US market’

Jake Parker, vice-president at the US-China Business Council in Beijing, which lobbies on behalf of US companies in China, said that “things are moving in the wrong direction on these issues.” “More tariffs will not persuade either government to change their positions and will exacerbate the damage being done to American companies and farmers that do business with China. Negotiation is the only way to get these issues back on the right track,” Parker said. “We urge both governments to stop their squabbling and get back to the real work of addressing these important structural issues. Doing so will give American exporters and investors a level playing field in China.”
