Mr. Trump has already said he would raise tariffs to 30 percent from 25 percent on $250 billion in Chinese goods, including everything from cars to aircraft parts, on Oct. 1.

The ministry’s announcement came during a visit to Beijing by American business executives to meet senior Chinese government officials in hopes of fostering a trade dialogue.

Although Beijing has made pharmaceutical innovation a national priority, China’s drug development is in the earliest stages compared to the broader industry. At the same time, China’s demand for lifesaving drugs is growing as its population ages and suffers from more chronic diseases, like cancer.

Many Chinese people seeking lifesaving drugs buy their medicine from Hong Kong and Macau, Chinese territories that operate under different laws than the mainland.
