PRC Ministry of Finance, September 4th, 2009. (中华人民共和国海关总署公告2009年第61号)
In September 2009, pursuant to a WTO dispute, the Chinese government announced it was abandoning a policy from 2006 whereby certain imported cars would be subject to a 25% 'charge', which was deemed by the WTO investigation to be tantamount to an import tariff.
The official import tariff of 10% was not affected.
