Hong Kong has formally written Washington demanding it drop new regulations requiring locally made products exported to the US to be labelled “Made In China”, saying the city could take the matter to the World Trade Organisation.

Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Edward Yau Tang-wah reiterated on Wednesday that the sanctions were unreasonable and said he had asked the US consulate in Hong Kong to convey a letter to trade representative Robert Lighthizer making clear the city’s opposition to the move, announced in August.

Yau also said he instructed the city’s trade offices in the United States and representatives at the WTO in Geneva to convey the same message to the American side.
