China unveils list of US food products that will face additional tariffs
In the midst of the unabating US/China trade war, China has recently released the lists of US products which are targeted to face additional tariffs.
On 1 September and 15 December, Beijing plans to impose an additional 10% duty on a large number of food products, with a further 5% levy on selected food items. The State Council Tariff Commission of China has released 2 lists of tariffs - the 1 September and the 15 December list.
The commission said the tariffs is a retaliation to the recent US announcement of a 10% tariff on approximately US$300 billion of goods imported from China, also to be imposed on 1 September and 15 December dates.
Food products take the brunt of the most immediate retaliation on 1 September with 10% duties being imposed on a long list of frozen, fresh and smoked fish and seafood lines. Also included are a range of meat products - salted beef, chicken wings and pork chops being important examples; and many American vegetables, nuts and fruits, including mushrooms, pistachios and oranges. A smaller list of food products will also be hit by an additional 5% duty and these include most dairy products like cheese, milk and buttermilk included; and more preserved meats and vegetables.
