China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Thursday that China is confident it will be able to react against any form of trade or investment protectionist act.
Gao Feng, spokesperson for the MOC, made the remarks in response to a question about how China would be effected by the U.S. government plan to slap tariffs on about 50 billion U.S. dollars of Chinese imports and restrict Chinese investment.
Trade with the United States, valued at about 580 billion U.S. dollars, accounted for 14.1 percent of China's total foreign trade. China's investment in the country, valued at about 7.8 billion U.S. dollars, accounted for 6.5 percent of its total non-financial outbound investment, Gao said at the press conference.
