CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

2018, U.S. implements $16b tariffs on China

As U.S. and Chinese officials are currently conducting mid-level trade talks in Washington D.C., the

list of 25% tariffs,

announced by the Trump Administration on August 10th, were implemented today on roughly $16 billion of Chinese goods.

The list of 279 HS tariff classifications includes plastics, semiconductors, electronic integrated circuits, motorcycles, and railway and farm equipment.

The Chinese government has imposed a 25% tariff on $16 billion of U.S. imports today as well.

The world’s two largest economies have now slapped tit-for-tat tariffs on a combined $100 billion in products since early July, with more in the pipeline, adding to risks to global economic growth.

Updates will be issued as new information becomes available.
