China is preparing retaliatory measures in case a trade war erupts after the US administration of Donald Trump takes office, according to a key US business lobby group.
“To our knowledge, China is already preparing measures in the event of actions by the new administration ... should [they] impose restrictions on trade and investment with respect to China,” Lester Ross, head of the policy committee with the American Chamber of Commerce in China, said on Wednesday.
“But apparently China’s already initiated certain measures in that regard, for example, the anti-dumping duties concerning ... [dried distillers grains with solubles] which are agricultural products imported to China.”
Representatives of the chamber will visit to Washington next month to meet US lawmakers and members of the new administration.
Ross also said new anti-dumping investigations by China were in the pipeline.
“Some of measures will take place any way. It is not as though China is without arsenals that it could take in response to actions of the United States,” Ross said.
“China has indeed threatened to and is preparing to take steps in retaliation if such actions take place.”
On the campaign trail, Trump threatened to punitive tariffs of up to 45 per cent on China’s exports to the United States and nominated hardline China critics to take up positions in his administration, moves that would raise the prospect of a trade war between the world’s biggest two economies.
Addressing the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Tuesday, President Xi Jinping said there would be no winner in a trade war.
Trade ties have been the cornerstone of China’s relations with the US but Trump has tested Beijing’s bottom line by challenging the one-China policy and accusing Beijing of artificially undervaluing the yuan.
