  • Walmart urges Trump administration to roll back new tariffs on Chinese imports: report

At a two-day event bringing together Alibaba's investors, Ma told the Chinese news website Xinhua that the promise "was made on the premise of friendly U.S-China partnership and rational trade relations".

"China is facing a host of difficulties and challenges in economic development", stated Li Keqiang, the Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China. He did not elaborate. In a letter to Robert Lighthizer, the USA trade representative, Walmart predicted that the immediate impact of the measures would be higher prices for consumers and higher taxes for businesses across America.

The trade war escalated this week as China announced 10 percent tariffs on $60 billion worth of US imports - retaliation for Trump's tariffs a day earlier.

While the direct economic impact of the dispute on China has so far been limited, the trade tensions could rapidly push Chinese exporters to switch away from the USA market, a former chief of China's central bank said on Wednesday.
