Import tariff

On 15 June 2009 the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China announced that it would be lowering tariffs on 28 goods originating in Hong Kong and 475 goods originating in Macao to 0%. The decision was made as part of the Closer Economic Partnership Agreement between the PRC and each of the two Special Administrative Regions (SAR). Tariff-free entry was formally implemented on 1 July 2009.
The HK goods affected are primarily textiles and some machinery, including magnetic resonance imaging technology, as well pineapples and shampoo.
Of the affected goods produced in Macao, tariffs applied to 200 different lines of agricultural products will now be reduced to zero. The products entering the PRC market tariff-free include fruits, nuts, oils, fish and fish products, processed foods and milk products. The remaining 275 tariff lines apply to chemical compounds and products, textiles (both natural and synthetic), toiletries, small electric appliances, non-motor vehicles and other household items.
