Temporary Halt On New Tariffs Announced By China and U.S.A. At G-20 Summit

: US Customs

United States and China Agree to Temporary Halt on New Tariffs Amid New Negotiations 2018-12-03

Dear Valued Customer,
 
On December 1, 2018, the United States (U.S.) and China announced an agreement to a 90 day halt on increasing tariffs to allow for additional negotiations between the two countries. The agreement came after talks
between the two countries at the G-20 conference in Argentina.
 
As part of the discussions, both countries agreed: 
  • The U.S. will not increase the tariff rate from 10% to 25% on January 1, 2019 for goods on Section 301 - List 3 for 90 days
  • China will purchase additional U.S. origin agricultural, energy, industrial products
  • New talks between the countries will launch to address issues including technology transfer, intellectual property, and non-tariff barriers
If no deal is reached between the U.S. and China within 90 days, then tariffs could increase from 10% to 25% around March 1, 2019.

A final list of HTS numbers on Section 301’s List 3 can be found here
