As from 1 December 2008, China made a series of adjustments to export tariffs on certain goods. The changes were announced in the General Administration of Customs Report 84, 2008.
The following adjustments were announced:
i) Elimination of export tariffs and special export tariffs on 102 tariff items of three types: 1- cold-rolled sheet steel, hot-rolled sheet steel, steel strip, alloy steel, welding pipes and other steel products; 2- ammonium nitrate, ammonium sulphate and other chemical products; 3- corn, millet, flour and other grain products.
 
ii) Lower export tariffs on 23 tariff items such as certain chemical fertilizers and their raw materials and certain aluminium materials, as well as wheat and rice and flour made with the same; lowered special export tariff rates on 31 tariff items, including nitrogen fertilizers, phosphate fertilizers and some of raw materials.
 
iii) Higher export tariff rates on five products, including apatite and silicon, and new export tariff on 15 products, including natural barium sulphate, talc, silicon carbide powder, cobalt (II, III) oxide and fluoride.
 
The measure expires on 31 December 2009.
