China reported a raft of unexpectedly weak data for July, including a surprise drop in industrial output growth to a more than 17-year low, underlining widening economic cracks as the trade war with the United States intensifies. The global slowdown amplified by tariff conflicts and uncertainty over Brexit also shrank European economies. Data from industry group the American Petroleum Institute (API) showed U.S. crude stocks unexpectedly rose last week.
Crude inventories increased by 3.7 million barrels to 443 million, compared with expectations for a decrease of 2.8 million barrels, the API said. The U.S. Trade Representative delayed imposing a 10% import tariff on laptops, cell phones, video game consoles and some other products made in China that had been scheduled to start next month.
China’s commerce ministry said in a statement that U.S. and Chinese trade officials spoke on the phone and agreed to talk again within two weeks. U.S. President Donald Trump said earlier this month that he would impose a 10% tariff on $300 billion of Chinese goods by Sept. 1 as China did not buy more American agricultural products as promised.
