The US has announced it will introduce 10% tariffs on an extra $200bn worth of Chinese goods, with Beijing promising to respond in kind.
US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the new tariffs are in response to China’s pursuit of "abusive trading practices with regard to intellectual property and innovation".
The US public have been given until the end of August to comment on the proposed list, which is expected to come into force in September.
China has said it is shocked by the US announcement and plans to retaliate.
Washington has already implemented tariffs on $34bn worth of goods with duties on a further $16bn set to come into force in the autumn. China has responded in kind.
