  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On August 23, 2019, the People’s Republic of China’s Ministry of Finance (MOF), State Council Tariff Commission (SCTC) announced new tariffs on certain U.S. products, valued at $75 billion USD. The announcement includes two lists; List 1 is to be implemented on September 1, 2019 and List 2 is to be implemented on December 15, 2019. Additional tariffs of 10 and 5 percent are applied to the harmonized schedule tariff lines on each list. Many of these products are also subject to earlier tariff increases by China. This brings the total number of U.S. agricultural and related products targeted by additional Chinese tariffs since April 2018 to over 1,000 products, valued at approximately $22.6 billion in 2017. The increased tariffs will be calculated in aggregate with earlier additional tariffs.
