USCBC urges reconsideration of tariffs on all remaining Chinese goods

WASHINGTON, DC - August 1, 2019 - The US-China Business Council (USCBC) is disappointed that the Trump administration has decided to move forward with placing a 10 percent tariff on the remaining $300 billion of Chinese imports to the United States starting on September 1. 

According to USCBC President Craig Allen, “We’re concerned that today’s action will drive the Chinese from the negotiating table, reducing hope raised by a second round of talks that ended this week in Shanghai.”


A shy "mea culpa" of Trump before the US

"It is the first recognition by the Trump Administration that the president's tariffs are hurting consumers," Doug Barry, spokesman for the US-China Business Council, which encompasses companies, told Efe on Wednesday. For the business association, this delay "seems to be motivated by the desire to avoid affecting consumers during the Christmas shopping season," a theory that Trump himself has defended in statements to journalists.
