  • Donald Trump is set to stop Chinese companies from investing in US technology firms

The US plans to ban firms with at least a quarter Chinese ownership from buying US companies with "industrially significant technology", the Wall Street Journal reported, as a trade war between Washington and Beijing intensifies. "We are ready to continue discussions on the purchase of Airbus planes in a timely manner", Li said. It is planning to impose tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods July 6 - a figure that could rise to $450 billion if China refuses to back down and retaliates with sanctions of its own.

The tensions, which for weeks have struck fear into the hearts of global investors, add to those sparked by the trade dispute between the United States and European Union.

President Donald Trump this week is due to launch the next phase of his economic confrontation with Beijing, with new restrictions on Chinese investments to clamp down on access to sensitive American technologies. President Emmanuel Macron declared China's interest in buying $US18 billion worth of Airbus A320 narrow-body jets but failed to clinch a deal during a state visit in January.

The beef ban was imposed over a decade ago as Beijing started closing off its markets to all European imports, and later to United States beef imports, in the wake of the "mad cow" disease scare.

"Both sides believe that we must resolutely oppose unilateralism and trade protectionism and prevent such behaviour from causing volatility and recession in the global economy", Liu told a media briefing after the talks.

Europe and China will form a group aimed at updating global trade rules to address technology policy, government subsidies and other emerging complaints in a bid to preserve support for worldwide commerce, the vice president of the European Union's governing body said Monday.

In late May, the US announced new tariffs of up to 25 percent on steel and aluminum imports from allies Mexico, Canada and the EU.

The meeting between economic decision makers from the European Union and China took place after the U.S. government threatened to impose several types of tariffs on products from China and the European Union over the past few weeks. As China steps up its engagement in Europe, the European Union, too, is working on measures to tighten screening of outside investments to protect critical technologies and infrastructure.

It said it would shift some production out of the U.S. to try to avoid the costs.

Katainen said that these issues were widely discussed during the meeting but that they should do more than just talk. Statement will be out not specific to China, but to all countries that are trying to steal our technology.
