The office of the US trade representative has officially changed the date of the increase in tariff rates on Chinese goods in the amount of $200 billion, according to Reuters. The US authorities decided to postpone the date of duty increase from January 1 to March 2, 2019. Appropriate changes have been made in the Federal register of the United States, said the Agency.
Washington planned to raise tariffs on imports from China from 10% to 25% from January 1, introduced in September. But in December, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina, the US and Chinese leaders agreed to postpone the increase in duties for 90 days and hold additional talks on this issue.
