Beijing: China's trade surplus with the United States eased in July after President Donald Trump imposed tariffs on Chinese goods in a showdown between the world's two biggest economies, official data showed.

The Asian giant posted a USD 28.1 billion surplus last month after reporting a record USD 28.9 billion in June according to Chinese customs data.
