Japan Nikkei tumbles 1.2% on latest tariff news
(16:13, 11 Jul 2018)
Headline indices of the Japan share market dropped on Wednesday, 11 July 2018, amid sign of escalating trade tensions between the world's two biggest economies after the United States said it would impose tariffs on an extra 200 billion worth of Chinese imports. Among TSE33 issues, 31 issues inclined, while 4 declined, with shares of Pharmaceutical, Wholesale Trade, Pulp & Paper, Electric Power & Gas, Iron & Steel, and Marine Transportation issues being notable gainers. At the close, the benchmark Nikkei 225 index dropped 1.2%, or 264.68 points, to 21,932.21. The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, fell 0.83%, or 14.25 points, to 1,701.88.

The United States government decided to impose the extra tariffs after efforts to negotiate a solution to the dispute failed to reach an agreement. The Trump administration raised the stakes in its trade war with China on Tuesday, saying it would slap 10% tariffs on an extra $200 billion worth of Chinese imports.

U.S. officials released a list of thousands of Chinese imports the administration wants to hit with the new tariffs, including hundreds of food products as well as tobacco, chemicals, coal, steel and aluminum. It also includes consumer goods ranging from car tires, furniture, wood products, handbags and suitcases, to dog and cat food, baseball gloves, carpets, doors, bicycles, skis, golf bags, toilet paper and beauty products.

Last week, Washington imposed 25% tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports, drawing immediate retaliatory duties from Beijing on US imports in the first shots of a heated trade war. US President Donald Trump had warned then that his country may ultimately impose tariffs on more than $500 billion worth of Chinese imports.

The news sent stocks tumbling, and prompted a senior Chinese commerce ministry official to warn that the United States was harming the global trade order.
