  It is reported that China and the United States will soon announce the results of the survey and 301 may take restrictive measures against China。 How to treat the US action to be taken?Reporters interviewed the experts。
  This is a trade protection behavior unilateralism 301 survey is the United States' Trade Act of 1974 "in a clause。 According to the regulations, the United States Trade Representative may be foreign law, policy or practice investigation, in consultation with the countries concerned, and decide whether to raise tariffs, import restrictions, to stop the implementation of relevant agreements and other retaliatory measures。   2017 August 18, the US Trade Representative's office confirmed to China started 301 investigations, mainly for legal policy and technology transfer, intellectual property and innovation-related or practices。
  "The findings may resort to the WTO ruling, but can not unilaterally impose sanctions。
If the United States is not to solve the problem through the WTO, trade protectionism is unilateralism is a violation of WTO principles。
"Foreign Economic and Trade University professor, said Tu Xinquan。   Lee Wing view, if the United States to take unilateral protectionist measures, not only the influence of China Association of International Trade in the United States and Europe Economic Co-Chair of Strategic Research Center, China and the US economy, but also produce bad demonstration effect, thereby disrupting the whole order。
  The US government's actions met with opposition from the United States industry。
Many US companies and associations generally expressed concerns over the US unilateral action, there are 45 American Association clearly stated objections。   No winner in a trade war to impose high tariffs on some Chinese goods is expected to become the main content of restrictive measures, which is also considered one of the means to reduce the US trade deficit of hope。
Experts said the US trade deficit to form complex reasons related to their economic development level and industrial structure。 The formation of trade deficit is not a day, but can not suddenly be resolved through coercive measures。   The United States might take unilateral approach of the two countries, especially the United States to bring the damage is self-evident。
  United States Information Technology recently released a record will show, if the government Trump 25% tariff information and communication technology products imposed imports from China, the next 10 years will result in the loss of about 3320 one hundred million US economy。   The burden of high tariffs will eventually be passed on to produce American businesses and consumers at the pump。 To taxation, for example, not only upstream manufacturers and downstream in the labor market will be caught。
LI Yong said the US government had a tax on steel imports in 2002, the number of unemployed downstream industry was caused by more than the steel industry total employment。   "Importer selection of imported goods is what kind of market behavior, can not drive by executive order。 Currently, there are about 500,000 US importers, protectionist measures will inevitably harm their interests。
"Said Lee Wing。   Deal with China trade war has emboldened the United States and face cards continue to provoke trade friction, how China will deal with?  301 acts against the United States soon to be released survey results, the Ministry of Commerce official, 22, he said China firmly opposes the US trade protectionism and unilateralism such acts。
Will never sit idle legitimate rights are being infringed, will take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguard their legitimate rights and interests。
  Ministry of Foreign Affairs also said that China did not want to fight a trade war with anyone。 "But if someone is forcing us to fight non, we will not be afraid, two will not hide。 "Insiders said that China is not afraid of a trade war, face a trade war, China has emboldened, but also cards。
  "Retaliation and counter-measures are a last resort option, we will not stand still。
"Said Lee Wing。 US initiatives have a strong color of the Cold War, if not corrected, will affect the all-round Sino-US economic and trade relations。
  The ability to "trade war is not the key to the loss itself, but afford to lose。 "Tu Xinquan said that China has the ability and confidence to deal with trade war。 We hope that the US can abandon the zero-sum thinking, while China's expanding opening up, the United States can be more open and transparent investment and exports to China。
