Today begins three days of trade hearings in which U.S. corporations will make their case against President Trump's proposed $50 billion in tariffs on Chinese imports.
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) said on Monday that it will hold public hearings on the Trump administration's proposed tariffs on approximately 50 billion U.S. dollars worth of imported Chinese goods from Tuesday to Thursday.
In a statement Monday, Ross noted taking action on ZTE is a different issue than the trade dispute with China.
Partially state-owned ZTE makes cellphones, network switching equipment and other telecommunications equipment. "The more we can work things out, the better it's going to be not just for USA and China, but for the entire world economy", he said. "Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!"

ZTE should not be operating in the United States and should not have easy access to American technology, Rubio said. Earlier this month China responded in turn, threatening to impose a similar amount in levies on over 100 USA imports including soybeans, and automobiles. The block on ZTE was a heavy blow for the company but also hurt the US companies it buys from. It would reduce US gross domestic product by almost 3 billion dollars and destroy 134,000 American jobs annually, according to a new study recently released by the federation and the Consumer Technology Association. Trump appears willing to negotiate, and just over the weekend announced his intention to help Chinese electronics maker ZTE, which was on the brink of collapse after USA imposed penalties on it last month for breaking sanctions against Iran and North Korea. ZTE has asked the department to suspend the seven-year ban on doing business with USA technology exporters.
ZTE is known to rely on importing chips from USA firms such as Qualcomm and Intel for up to a third of its components.
The first round of trade talks between China and the USA took place in Beijing on May 3 to 4. Both sides had been expected to dig in for a fight over their trade imbalance at this week's talks.
