In the recent move by US leader to apply pressure to the Chinese government to consider trade concessions, the US authorities are braced for collecting 25% duties on another $16 billion in China’s products on August 23.
On Wednesday, China’s data is expected to come up with the first readings of the entire trade picture for the world's number two economy, since American duties on $34 billion of China’s products came true on July 6.
Simultaneously, China's exports for July tacked on a bigger than anticipated 12.2% year-on-year, demonstrating little tariff influence for now and also surpassing June's 11.2% soar and experts’ hopes in a Reuters survey for 10% surge.
By the way, China's surplus with America dived just marginally to $28.09 billion in July from June’s record outcome of $28.97 billion. The US government has long criticized the trade surplus of China with America and has demanded the opponent reduced it.
