Timeline of the U.S.–China Trade Dispute and Tariffs on Cotton and Textile Trade
Timeline of the U.S.–China Trade Dispute and Tariffs on Cotton and Textile Trade (C 1259) In 2018, the Trump Administration proclaimed significant changes in tariff actions on a variety of U.S. imports, which led to retaliation by U.S. trading partners—including China and many U.S. allies. These actions led to a 2-year trade dispute between the United States and China. Global commercial ties were destabilized and the trade and investment transactions and flows were hampered by the resulting trade dispute. This paper documents the timeline of the U.S.–China trade dispute and the retaliation and responses from China to the Trump Administration’s tariffs. As cotton and its related products were caught in the middle of the trade dispute, this paper also provides discussions about the tariffs implemented by both countries on the cotton and textile sector.
