Sputnik spoke with Dr Biswajit Dhar, Trade Deal Expert, for more insight on the issue.
Sputnik: Will the upcoming talks convince the US to back down from its trade tariffs?
Sputnik: Will the tariffs have any negative effect domestically on the US economy?
Dr Biswajit Dhar: The US is an import dependent economy and survives on imports coming in from the rest of the world.
Imposing such high tariffs from a major supplier is certainly going to make life difficult for American citizens and companies, who will face major challenges in meeting competition.
