Sino-US Tariff Increase Progress in September


300 billion US dollars to increase tariffs to extend the validity period of exclusion

On August 28, the Office of the United States Trade Representative announced a list of products with a tariff increase of 300 billion US dollars to extend the expiration date. The exclusion period of some products is extended from September 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.

Products involved in excluding extended period

There are 214 items in the original US list of 300 billion tariff excluded products, and 87 items have been postponed this time, so there is no need to levy additional tariffs during the extension period.

Products without extended validity period

For products removed from the exclusion list from September 1, 2020, an additional tariff of 7.5% will be resumed.
