Mexican negotiators lowered the sales tax exemption back to the $50 level, while raising the customs duties limit to $117, matching Canada, Guajardo said.

Much of Pence's remarks are meant to inform the public of what the USA government terms as China's covert and overt influence campaign.

"Beijing has mobilised covert actors, front groups and propaganda outlets to shift Americans' perception of Chinese policies", he said.

Mr Pence said: "As a senior career member of our intelligence community recently told me, what the Russians are doing pales in comparison to what China is doing across this country".

"These actions threaten the stability of the Taiwan Strait - and the United States of America condemns them".

Negotiations to modernize NAFTA began in August 2017 as U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to withdraw from the trilateral trade deal, arguing that it harmed U.S. industries and jobs.

He called on Google to cancel its "Dragonfly" project, an internet search engine for Chinese consumers that would filter out results objectionable to China's government. "The Chinese Communist Party is turning plowshares into swords on a massive scale", Pence said in a speech at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C.

Mr Pence also accused China of "reckless harassment" after a near-miss involving a Chinese warship and the destroyer USS Decatur which was sailing within 12 nautical miles of Gaven and Johnson Reefs in the Spratly Islands in the disputed South China Sea.

Sounding the alarm, Pence warns other nations to be wary of doing business with China, condemning the Asian country's "debt diplomacy" that allows it to draw developing nations into its orbit. But that's normal. The Americans do it.

The committee's chairman, Republican Devin Nunes of California, didn't respond to a request for comment.

Last week, President Donald Trump accused China of attempting to interfere in USA politics. As proof, Trump later referenced a paid advertising insert in The Des Moines Register by Chinese government-affiliated entities.

Trump appears to be gearing up for a protracted trade war, declaring earlier this week that "it's too early to talk" with China.

Even before the announcement of the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the agricultural industry was feeling optimistic.

What matters more, Balbian said, are the concerns of the U.S.'s two biggest importers: Mexico and China. Pence singled out those retaliatory tariffs in his speech on Thursday.

Canada is the top trading partner of Iowa, leading in imports and exports with the state, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Ken Neumann, national director of United Steelworkers, discusses why the union feels betrayed by Ottawa's inability to tackle USA metal tariffs that still remain despite the negotiation of a revamped NAFTA. China's strategic tariffs have been interpreted as an effort to support congressional opposition to Trump's trade policies.

"Chinese security agencies have masterminded the wholesale theft of American technology, including cutting-edge military blueprints and using that stolen technology".

He criticized China for its militarization of the South China Sea, its trade practices and intellectual property theft, its crackdown on political opposition and religious groups at home and its political interference in the USA and around the world. And that began to compete directly with US export sales. "There is no clear sign of mitigating confrontation between China and the United States in the near term".

'The United States Navy will continue to fly, sail and operate wherever worldwide law allows and our national interests demand, ' Pence said. "We did not and will not interfere in any country's domestic affairs", said Wang.

Pence alleged that China was waging a sophisticated influence campaign aimed at swaying the November 6 elections against Trump's Republican Party in retaliation for his trade policies against Beijing.
