people in iceland are now saying no to. berlin good to have you with us now it's even down to copy machines memory chips and voice recorders u.s. president donald trump has announced a fresh set of tariffs on products from china the new duties and initially set a ten percent will affect two hundred billion dollars worth of imports it's a long list of products with a silver lining for tech trends and parents smartphones and baby products have now been exempt. the latest salvo in the u.s. is trade war against china would effectively bring around half of all chinese goods imported into the u.s. under president donald trump's tariff regime washington's first round of punitive taxes which started in july concentrated on industrial goods this time around a wide range of consumer products are to be taxed effective september twenty four actually it's a disgrace that it was and so china is now paying those billions of dollars in
3:18 pm
tariffs and hopefully we'll be able to work something out work i think they want to make a deal they don't want to make it about i can tell you they want to make a deal. but from our standpoint it has to be fair it has to take care of our workers china swiftly valid a counter attack an expected response previously it said it would impose tariffs on another sixty billion dollars in u.s. exports the new move on look we keep stressing that the dialogue and consultation based on equality good faith and mutual respect is the only right way out of the trade dispute but what the u.s. is doing shows no sincerity and goodwill. move on that issue that you for your own form of for sound i love seeing that which remains. the world's top two economies could be losing room to maneuver separate from tariffs already implemented or imminent trump is also threatened even more punitive taxes on two hundred sixty seven billion dollars worth of goods should he make good on that
3:19 pm
threat tariffs would cover almost everything china sells to the united states. now in other news the european union opened an embed probe into alleged collusion by major german carmakers over anti pollution technology daniel cope standing by the frankfurt stock exchange then what more can you tell us. yes chris so it really seems to be the case that the dirty deeds the gates and it will never come to an end the commission which oversees the competition policy in the european union said in a statement today that they are looking into whether they carmakers agreed not to compete which with each other on developing and also rolling out the system to reduce those harmful emissions from petrol and also from these are the cars the european commission competition not let's say that again the european competition commissioner margaritaville say that if proven the coalition may have denied customers the opportunity to buy less polluting cars despite the technology that
3:20 pm
was available to the manufacturers we have to remember that all of this is happening after the commission raided the german carmakers premises of in october last year and the commission seems to be sure that the sort of the law fine if that's how they're calling it had secret meetings about this issue then you're open frank for thank you and returning to our top story the first set of terrorists. onto chinese imports into the united states for more i'm joined by mary says on out of the here is a professor of international economics at lancaster university in the u.k. . our commerce secretary wilbur ross says the u.s. is trying to give china an incentive for constructive new york time talks and he signed about. well i'm not so sure because as far as i know it but as we know there were supposed to be talks in washington this week there and now all of this than these that the season comes out with him is going to take effect on september
3:21 pm
twenty fourth so it seems that is a very short span of time and to try to achieve some sort of results and also the implied the explicit goal for something more to come in case that china decides to retire gets i'm not sure these are the best precondition to engage in a meaningful conversation with china not china involved to retaliate yet it imports only one hundred thirty billion dollars worth of u.s. goods could it go to the bond market to strike back. they could do a lot of things that depends on much we want to take of course they import the less than the u.s. but then if the u.s. is putting it out of ten percent increase to twenty five percent of the chinese may start their way with a full twenty two increase to thirty so even with the trade policy there is their freedom of of the truth being a proper strategy of course they can move to the bond market if all of a sudden china will start to sell some of the treasury bills that will lead in
3:22 pm
effect on the united states on the financial market that not only ended a relationship between united states and china but it's trying to increase its terror of the u.s. government already said it would hurt all chinese imports. that's a full fledged trade war then where would that lead to and where would it end. i don't know the answer i think that in saudi arabia trade war at this point is saying that basically the aleph over the top of imports from china into the us subject to x. to these to either trade war is not anymore it's going to be short of the fifty leaders that will really be under both in the us and in china now we go to two hundred fifty impossibly to sixty with it then said i dunno it way we are these assured then to ease the pain the second and make unease of the world trade organization but we know that the trump of the station doesn't really believe the in the forum is a place to resolve conflicts so honestly i don't know we're into the end up if not
3:23 pm
all fully some other countries will intervene and try to meet though it's not easy we can president trump in china now more research many experts say that u.s. consumers will be badly hit by these terrorists but up until now there's no real outcry over rising prices well i think with depends who you talk to i mean i'm pretty sure there are some farmers a bit of quite that say in the united states the point is of course when you get off of the top of imports from china you cannot. find the goods toys and so on and so forth so now the faith in terms of prices in the united states would be that it the fate of these studies and it is that it affected just in time for the need to medications and then for a christmas present from seems to believe that these were not affected negatively republican parties or more generally the u.s. economy and that's a very odd gamble to take maryse as anandi professor at lancaster university thank you so much for your insight thanks. to georgia to georgia now
