10% Tariff on All Remaining Chinese Goods to Begin September 1, 2019
On August 1st, President Trump tweeted that on September 1, 2019, the U.S. will impose a “small additional Tariff of 10%” on all remaining imports from China. This additional tariff is a result of the administration’s determination that China is not making good on their promise to purchase U.S. agricultural products as well as stop the sale of Fentanyl into the U.S.
It is reported that the $300 billion of products covered by this tariff are all apparel, footwear and textile products among many others. This does not include the already levied 25% tariff on $250 billion worth of goods. A Federal Register notice is expected any day outlining details and to clarify which goods specifically are covered in the next round of tariffs on Chinese goods.
With less than a month until this tariff, we recommend you monitor your import shipments that have left China (or will be leaving soon) to make sure – whenever possible – that they arrive prior to the September 1 deadline. C J will continue to monitor the situation and advise you of any new developments.
