Govt con­sid­ers re­tal­ia­tory tar­iffs

China Daily - - WORLD -

Ja­pan is con­sid­er­ing slap­ping tar­iffs on US ex­ports worth $409 mil­lion in re­tal­i­a­tion against steel and alu­minum im­port tar­iffs im­posed by US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, pub­lic broad­caster NHK said on Thurs­day. The gov­ern­ment is pre­par­ing to no­tify the World Trade Or­ga­ni­za­tion of the plan, a necessary pro­ce­dure un­der global trade rules, this week, NHK said. The move is likely to be part of ef­forts to have Wash­ing­ton add Ja­pan to a list of coun­tries ex­empted from the US tar­iffs.
