Beijing has said it would retaliate to trade war escalation with tariffs of its own as well as qualitative measures, which it has not specified but are perceived within the US business community as likely to include increased customs and regulatory scrutiny.
Besides retaliating with tariffs, China could also restrict export of goods, raw materials and components core to USA manufacturing supply chains, former finance minister Lou Jiwei told a Beijing forum on Sunday, according to an attendee.
The new tariffs will apply to hundreds of items - ranging from seafood to handbags to toilet paper - that were on a list released July 10.
Also Monday, an official newspaper called for more aggressive measures to "make American pain worse" following tariff hikes by both sides on $50 billion of each other's goods.

US officials, led by the Treasury Department, have invited their Chinese counterparts to more talks on trade.
Other commentators have suggested Beijing use its holdings of US government debt or target American companies in China.
Multiple reports in recent days cited officials saying Trump had made a decision to press ahead with new tariffs, but at a lower rate of 10 percent after initially announcing they should be hiked to 25 percent in light of China's alleged intransigence.
