While he declined to say how Beijing planned to respond to the tariffs imposed by Washington on aluminium and steel imports, he said the two sides remained in talks on the issue.

The booth area for the International Import Expo (CIIE) slated for November in Shanghai has been over-booked by 20 percent, Chinese Commerce Minister Zhong Shan said Sunday.

China's trade minister Zhong Shan said that the U.S. trade deficit with China is overestimated by about 20%, citing research by a panel tasked with investigating the discrepancy between the two nations' accounts of their trade balance.

He highlighted that different statistical methods widen United States trade deficit with China by about 20 percent, citing the research of a joint work group tracking and comparing the two countries' trade figures. South Korea, Japan, China and India accounted for 6.6 million tones of steel imports. China accounts for only a small fraction of USA steel imports, but its massive industrial expansion has helped create a global glut of steel that has driven down prices. The commerce minister also blamed the trade imbalance in part on controls over US high-tech exports to China. He said China wants to contribute to the stable development of the world economy by settling differences through cooperation and building mutually beneficial relationships.

Diplomatic and USA business sources say the United States has frozen a formal mechanism for talks on commercial disputes with China because it is not satisfied Beijing has met its promises to ease market restrictions.
