The US-China trade war will continue to weigh on global trade and economy and Asia-Pacific is not spared.

BEIJING: China signaled it would hit back after the Trump administration placed eight of the country’s technology giants on a blacklist over alleged human rights violations against Muslim minorities.

Asked on Tuesday if China would retaliate over the blacklist, foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters "stay tuned.” He also denied that the government abused human rights in the far west region of Xinjiang.
