Importantly, China has opened a World Trade Organization challenge to the US' initial $50 billion proposed tariffs, while the eurozone and Japan joined a US challenge against alleged intellectual property theft by China. While we know the WTO arbitration process is a lengthy one－measured in months－it is nonetheless encouraging to see the international body is still being used as a medium of communication between different parties to settle trade disputes. That indeed is a ray of hope.
If China responds to these $150 billion of threatened US tariffs in kind, the cumulative loss of GDP in 2018-19 could reach 0.3 percent in each economy with the US potentially loosing more than 300,000 jobs.
