The Sino-US Trade War

The trade war between the United States (US) and China has been on the horizon for several months as Washington became increasingly vocal in its protests over the US trade and services deficit with China. The first salvos in the trade war were fired on 6 July, with the US activating tariffs on US$34bln worth of Chinese goods and China reciprocating with tariffs in kind.
