s average life expectancy from 40 years to 70.8 years, an accomplishment all the more admirable because China is still a de

As a leading developing country, China has notably closed the gap with developed countries in terms of people’s life

expectancy and health. In fact, by 2015, Chinese people’s average life expectancy at birth had increased to 76.34 years.

Compared with the mortality rate, however, the changes in China’s fertility rate have been astoundingly rapid. China became a low fertility country toward the end

of last century with its total fertility rate dropping below the replacement the level in 1992 from 5.81, about 2.8 times of rep

Since agricultural products account for a relatively smal

ll percentage of China’s total exports to the US, the tariff hike is expected to have a limited impact on its overall trade. But Chi

na’s export of textiles, chemicals, daily necessities and some other products will be affected. Yet the effect of the h

igher tariffs would be somewhat offset due to the ratio of foreign capital and value-added goods in China’s foreign trade.

In terms of product category, the tariffs are targeted at intermediate and capital goods. Intermediate prod

ucts, capital goods, and consumer goods account for 51 percent, 32 percent and 17 percent of t

he $250 billion of Chinese goods on which the US has imposed higher tariffs (the US had already slapped higher tari

ffs of $50 billion of Chinese goods last year). And since 29 percent of consumer goods, 39 percent of capital goods and 74 perce

nt of intermediate products face higher tariffs, intermediate products will be the most affected by the US tariffs.
