White House says Universal Postal Union unfairly benefits Chinese groups shipping to US .

The Trump administration complained the U.S. Post Office was subsidizing Chinese exporters, which it said pay too little to deliver the vast volume of packages generated by online commerce.

Gao said the impact on China overall should be small because fees paid to its post office also will increase.

The U.S. complaint centered on reimbursement for delivering "bulky letters and small parcels," usually weighing more than 2 kilograms (4½ pounds). They can include high-value items such as mobile phones, memory sticks or pharmaceuticals.
