The US authorities, at the request of Beijing, agreed to postpone the increase from 25% to 30% of duties on goods from China worth $ 250 billion for two weeks. The message about this the American president Donald trump published on Wednesday on his page on Twitter.
“At the request of Vice Premier of the State Council of the PRC Liu He, as well as the fact that on October 1, the PRC will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its founding, we agreed to transfer the increase from 25% to 30% of duties on products costing as a goodwill gesture $ 250 billion from October 1 to October 15, ”wrote the owner of the White House.
On September 1, the United States imposed additional duties of 15% on goods from China worth $ 112 billion. Trump noted that one of the reasons for taking this measure was China’s failure to fulfill its promise to increase purchases of US agricultural products. The second part of the fees will enter into force on December 15. China in response introduced the first part of additional duties of 10% on US products worth $ 75 billion. Additional fees of 5% on imports from the United States will be introduced on December 15. On the same day, China will also impose additional duties of 25% and 5%, respectively, on American cars and spare parts.
Earlier, trump announced that from October 1, goods from China for $ 250 billion will be subject to duties at 30%, and not 25%, as at present.
