Import tariff

On August 8th, 2018, the Chinese Ministry of Finance published its response to a new round of US tariffs that specifically targeted China.

The new round implicates trade in USD 16bn worth of goods: exactly the same as the US tariffs from the day prior.

The new tariffs are all at a supplementary 25% rate and go into effect on the 23rd August 2018.

The announcement stated that the new tariffs will follow the same implementation pattern as the previous round; please see related measure for more information.
