In a decision that could roil trade tensions with Beijing, President Obama agreed Friday to impose hefty tariffs on tires imported from China. The decision came after the U.S. International Trade Commission, a federal agency, determined that a surge of Chinese-made tires had disrupted the domestic market and cost thousands of jobs in the U.S. Within 15 days, the U.S. would add a duty of 35% in the first year, 30% in the second and 25% in...

BEIJING - Fresh out of college and facing a mountain of debt, the 21-year-old woman was searching online for jobs when she hit upon a listing that sounded perfect: administrative assistant at a tutoring school in Beijing. She sent in her resume, then reread the ad and noticed that only men were asked to apply for the position. "I got no response, so I called and asked: If I'm qualified but I'm not male, will I still be considered? The woman who answered said if the ad says men only, it's men only," she recalled.

A White House official Saturday defended President Obama's decision to levy steep tariffs on tires from China, denying that it was an act of trade protectionism, as Chinese officials charged, or was intended to make a statement about the administration's broader strategy on trade policy. "This is certainly not an action directed against globalization," said the official, who requested anonymity when discussing White House thinking, a day after Obama moved to add a 35% duty on automobile and light-truck tires.

President Obama and his Chinese counterpart, Hu Jintao, agreed to build a stronger relationship and work jointly to combat the spread of nuclear weapons, though differences over trade policies and human rights surfaced during a private summit meeting. Speaking to the media after their meeting at the Great Hall of the People, Obama said the U.S. welcomed China's rise as a world power, and President Hu said the two nations would step up visits, correspondence and phone calls "essential" to a closer partnership.

The Commerce Department said it would investigate charges that Chinese off-road tire producers were selling their products in the U.S. market at below fair market prices.

The Commerce Department on Wednesday set preliminary anti-dumping duties of as much as 210% on millions of off-road tires from China that it said were being sold in the United States at unfairly low prices. The tires were the sixth Chinese product to be hit with U.S. anti-dumping duties since the start of the year. The others include nails, certain steel pipe, a teeth-whitening ingredient and laminated woven sacks used to package items such as dog food and bird seed.

BEIJING -- Beijing filed a World Trade Organization complaint today over new U.S. tariffs on Chinese tires, stepping up pressure on Washington in the latest in a series of trade disputes. The conflict is a potential irritant as Washington and Beijing prepare for a summit of the Group of 20 leading economies in Pittsburgh on Sept. 24-25 to discuss efforts to end the worst global downturn since the 1930s. The Chinese complaint to the WTO in Geneva triggers a 60-day WTO process in which the two sides are to try to resolve the dispute through negotiations.

On the eve of his first Pacific trip since entering the White House, President Obama signaled Thursday that he would press Asian leaders to open up their markets and boost purchases of U.S. goods instead of relentlessly focusing on exporting more and more to American consumers. In remarks made before leaving Washington on the seven-day, four-nation trip, the president suggested that Asia must do more to "rebalance" the global economy by accepting more U.S. imports, increasing its own domestic consumption and relying less on Americans as buyers of last resort.

A Chinese tire manufacturer and its affiliates filed a $1-billion lawsuit Tuesday against Goodyear, claiming the company stole a tire factory out from under them. The plaintiffs are CTHL, a Chinese tire manufacturer, and its affiliates, Orion Tire Corp. of San Clemente and China Strategic Holdings Limited of Hong Kong.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration agreed to cooperate with China on auto-safety standards and information after criticism of a recall of Chinese-made tires. Safety advocates criticized U.S. regulators in an August recall of 255,000 light-truck tires made in China for a U.S. importer, saying they missed an early warning of defects. Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co., which produced the tires, has said it is cooperating with the safety agency.
