    WTO Says It Has Received China Complaint Over Proposed U.S. Tariffs

    The World Trade Organization (WTO) has received a request from China for consultations with the United States regarding proposed new U.S. tariffs on Chinese imports, the WTO said Thursday.

    A request for consultations at the WTO often precedes a full legal challenge.

    China made its WTO filing after the U.S. on Tuesday unveiled a list of $50 billion worth of Chinese imports that will be subject to a proposed 25% punitive tariff for alleged unfair trade practices.

    China itself then announced retaliatory tariffs on a similar value of U.S. goods.

    The WTO filing came before the Trump administration's latest announcement, also on Thursday, that the U.S. would consider a new round of tariffs on an additional $100 billion worth of Chinese imports.
