A high-level trade delegation(代表团) from the United States arrived in Beijing Thursday to hold talks with Chinese officials on trade policies. The negotiations(谈判) are expected to deal with ways to resolve(解决) these trade disputes(争论). In addition, the two sides are expected to discuss newly-announced trade tariffs(关税). In early April, China announced tariffs on more than 100 U.S. goods, including vehicles(车辆), plastic goods and agricultural products. The new tariffs would affect $50 billion worth of U.S. products. The move followed a Trump administration announcement that it planned to place tariffs on about $50 billion dollars of Chinese exports. Trump has also suggested he is considering putting additional tariffs on up to $100billion in Chinese goods. China denies(否认) that it carries out unfair trading policies. However, it recently announced moves some observers see as partly answering the U.S. criticism(批评). Chinese officials have promised to reduce a 25 percent tariff on imported foreign cars by 2022. China also announced it would drop(放弃) rules requiring foreign automakers to share factory ownership and profits with Chinese companies by the same year. A Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman confirmed(确认) the talks had begun, but did not provide further information. The spokeswoman said China welcomed the talks. But she said the negotiations should be based on equality(平等) and respect, to provide a "win-win" agreement for both sides.
