Here at JORI International Ltd., we strive to keep you informed with the latest news.  As CTV News has reported, U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday, May 5th that,

“tariffs on US$200 billion of Chinese imports will jump from 10 per cent to 25 per cent this week, giving Chinese negotiators a fresh deadline and added pressure as talks between the two countries resume this week.  We have yet to hear the result of that meeting that was scheduled for yesterday this week.”
