U.S. Secretary of Commerce pressures trading partners to accept import quotas if they do not want tariffs
According to reports, the U.S. Secretary of Commerce Ross said that countries have been asked to provide safeguards to prevent the transfer of products from China. Regarding steel and aluminum tariffs, the United States seeks to set import quotas for its trading partners. “We demand that all people do not want tariffs and quotas.”
Ross said that the United States hopes that the EU will reduce the tariffs on imported cars and hopes to lower China's trade barriers. When talking about China, he said that there are many aspects of negotiations, but the future of high-tech industries will certainly be the focus.
Rose's above quota-related position is consistent with Trump's cabinet hawk trade representative and White House trade adviser Navarro.
