BEIJING (REUTERS) - China will actively take measures to safeguard China's and its industries' interests, vice commerce minister said in response to United State's trade investigations.

The US decision to launch trade investigations is a unilateral act of trade protectionism, vice minister Wang Shouwen said in New Delhi, according to a statement released on Wednesday (March 21).

The adoption of trade restrictive measures will not only impede normal international trade order but also cause serious damage to multilateral trade, Wang added.
