CHINA SLAPS UP TO 200% TARIFFS ON AUSTRALIAN WINE
Starting on Saturday, China will impose taxes on Australian wine up to 212 % .
Its commerce ministry said these were temporary anti-dumping measures to stop subsidised imports of Australian wine.
The duties will range from 107% to 212%, intensifying trade tensions between the two countries.
In recent months, Beijing has targeted Australian imports including coal, sugar, barley and lobsters amid political tensions.
