«Business groups call on Biden to restart trade talks with China»

«tariffs on Chinese imports are a drag on U.S. economy»

«Nearly three dozen of the nation’s most influential business groups—representing retailers, chip makers, farmers and others—are calling on the Biden administration to restart negotiations with China and cut tariffs on imports, saying they are a drag on the U.S. economy»

«The tariffs on electronics, apparel and other Chinese goods, which are paid by U.S. importers, were kept in place»

«A worker-centered trade agenda should account for the costs that U.S. and Chinese tariffs impose on Americans here and at home and remove tariffs that harm U.S. interests»

«China had met “important benchmarks and commitments” in the agreement»

I media riportano la notizia in modo ambiguo.

Sembrerebbe quasi che i 35 gruppi economici che hanno chiesto alla Harris-Biden Administration di rimuovere i dazi imposti lo avrebbero fatto per tutelare gli interessi degli acquirenti americani.

Questa è però una mezza, un ottavo, di verità.

Nei fatti, invece, questi gruppi economici sono stati grandemente danneggiati dalle contromisure cinesi.

Gli interessi di bottega solitamente amano mimetizzarsi sotto le spoglie di filantropico amore per il popolo.

U.S. business groups call on President Biden to restart trade talks with China – WSJ

Nearly three dozen of the United States’ most influential business groups have asked President Joe Biden’s administration to restart trade talks with China and cut tariffs on imports, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

The tariffs on Chinese products paid by U.S. importers were imposed to ensure that Beijing fulfills its obligations under its 2020 Phase One trade pact with the United States.

In a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Thursday, the business groups said that China had met “important benchmarks and commitments” in the agreement, the report added, including opening markets to U.S. financial institutions and reducing some regulatory barriers to U.S. agricultural exports to China.

“A worker-centered trade agenda should account for the costs that U.S. and Chinese tariffs impose on Americans here and at home and remove tariffs that harm U.S. interests,” the report quoted the letter as saying.

Business Groups Call on Biden to Restart Trade Talks With China

U.S. chamber, others say tariffs on Chinese imports are a drag on U.S. economy.

Nearly three dozen of the nation’s most influential business groups—representing retailers, chip makers, farmers and others—are calling on the Biden administration to restart negotiations with China and cut tariffs on imports, saying they are a drag on the U.S. economy.

The tariffs on electronics, apparel and other Chinese goods, which are paid by U.S. importers, were kept in place in part to ensure that China fulfills its obligations under its 2020 Phase One trade pact with the U.S.

In a Thursday letter to U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, the business groups contend that Beijing had met “important benchmarks and commitments” in the agreement, including opening markets to U.S. financial institutions and reducing some regulatory barriers to U.S. agricultural exports to China.

“A worker-centered trade agenda should account for the costs that U.S. and Chinese tariffs impose on Americans here and at home and remove tariffs that harm U.S. interests,” the letter said, referring to the administration’s policy to make worker interests a priority.

Spokesmen for the U.S. trade representative’s office and Treasury didn’t immediately respond to requests for comments.
