トランプ大統領、9月1日に対中関税第4弾 ツイートで表明

トランプ大統領は8月1日、中国からの輸入品3千億ドル分を対象とする追加関税「第4弾」を9月1日に発動すると表明した。スマートフォンなど従来は追加関税の対象外だった輸入品のほぼ全てに、10%の関税を上乗せする方針。

米中両国は7月30〜31日に中国・上海で高官級の通商協議を開催、帰国した米側の交渉団から報告を受けた。

Our representatives have just returned from China where they had constructive talks having to do with a future Trade Deal.

We thought we had a deal with China three months ago, but sadly, China decided to re-negotiate the deal prior to signing.

More recently, China agreed to buy agricultural product from the U.S. in large quantities, but did not do so.

Additionally, my friend President Xi said that he would stop the sale of Fentanyl (合成オピオイド) to the United States – this never happened, and many Americans continue to die!

Trade talks are continuing, and during the talks the U.S. will start, on September 1st, putting a small additional Tariff of 10% on the remaining 300 Billion Dollars of goods and products coming from China into our Country. This does not include the 250 Billion Dollars already Tariffed at 25%.

We look forward to continuing our positive dialogue with China on a comprehensive Trade Deal, and feel that the future between our two countries will be a very bright one!
