Speaking to global business leaders at an economic forum, Vice-Premier Han Zheng appealed on Sunday for cooperation to make economic globalisation "beneficial for all." Han says, "a trade war serves the interests of none. It will only lead to serious consequences and negative impact."

Han didn't mention Trump by name but other Chinese officials have said Beijing is ready to defend its interests after the US president approved possible higher tariffs on Chinese goods in a dispute over its technology policy.

Beijing released a list of US goods it said might be hit by higher tariffs.
