The December 2008 release from China's Tariffs and Tax Standards Committee reduced import tariffs on a total of 106 items. 101 of these were included in the 'provisional import tax update' list, plus five items, including strawberries, fruit and nuts and fermented beverages, which had their rates 'specially' reduced. See taxonomy section for more details.

21 changes were made only for 2009.

72 were extended for at least one year.

N.B.: Some reductions come in the form of changing a per unit tariff to ad valorem. Please see official announcement for more details.
