China on Monday said it will impose tariffs on $60 billion worth of US goods from June 1, after Washington announced plans to tax almost all Chinese imports to the United States.

Beijing will impose tariffs ranging from 5 per cent to 25 per cent on a number of American goods, according to a statement by the Tariff Policy Commission of the State Council — China’s cabinet.
