And now her goods are avoiding the sweeping tariffs enacted by President Trump in his trade war with China.

"As in the past, the United States is willing to engage in efforts that could lead to a resolution of our concerns about China's unfair trade practices and to China opening its market to USA goods and services", he said.

The list of goods affected by the new tariffs includes seafood, fruits and vegetables, grains and tobacco.

In addition, the U.S.is considering separate duties on a further US$16 billion in Chinese goods, after a public hearing later this month.
