Last summer, Section 301 was heavily investigated, and the U.S. Trade Representative’s office concluded that Chinese trade policies are causing billions of dollars in damage to companies in the United States. Since then, the Trump Administration has come out with three lists of products in which the United States threatened to levy tariffs on listed items.

Since then, President Trump has imposed tariffs on $250 billion of imports from China into the United States. The reason being that Trump wanted, “to force concessions from Beijing on his list of demands for trade reforms. He had also threatened to target another $267 billion worth of goods if his demands are not addressed” (WSAU). A response from Chinese President Xi Jinping ensued shortly after in which he demanded that the United States lift tariffs, specifically the ones placed on aluminum and steel imports. Conflicting positions has led a Washington-based source to quote, “they are not close to a favorable deal on trade. Not in the same universe” (WSAU).

With all these conflicting positions in play, President Trump and Xi held a meeting in late November/early December to try and come to an agreement regarding high tariffs. From this meeting, recent news reportings have stated that Trump and Xi have, “agreed to keep their trade war from escalating with a promise to temporarily halt the imposition of new tariffs as the world’s two largest economies negotiate a lasting agreement” (Bloomberg). The two leaders have agreed to stop new tariffs and intensify their trade talks. From this the U.S. will still impose existing tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods at 10%. Additionally, the U.S. planned to raise rates at the beginning of this year to 25% but that has now been postponed due to the conclusion of the last meeting. 90 days from the date of the meeting, if there is no progress between both parties, the U.S. will then impose the 25% tariff rate.

As this is a major international conflict, both President Trump and Xi seem to want to strike a deal that serves as a benefit for both progressing economies. A deal is sure to come in the near future. Stay updated with current news by following the DutyCalc blog.

The new Section 301 tariffs have caused drastic changes within the industry. Importers and exporters are scrambling to obtain the newest information as there are thousands of product listings that are affected by Trump’s trade changes. Below is an update on the current status of Lists 1-3.

List 1, which contains $34 billion worth of imports, has been effective since July 7, 2018. List 1 originally had over 1,000 tariff lines but ended up being condensed down to 818 items.

List 2, which contains $16 billion worth of imports, has been effective since August 23, 2018. List 2 originally had over 284 tariff lines but ended up being condensed down to 279 items.

List 3, which contains about $200 billion worth of imports, has been effective since September 24, 2018. List 3 originally had over 6,000 tariff lines but ended up being condensed down to 5,745 items.

Though these lists of tariffs have been implemented, The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, has provided an opportunity for the public to request for product exclusion. Giving companies the opportunity to address situations that allow exclusion of a specific product within a subheading but not the tariff subheading as a whole. Because of such a high volume of requests, the USTR is still currently in the process of posting final exclusions.

The recent activity regarding Section 301 tariffs have caused major changes for the import and export industry. List 1 and List 2 have been in effect since July, but the final list has officially been released and has been effective since September 24th of this year. List 3 includes a variety of imports from China which include products like chemicals, textiles, metal, and electronics. Tariffs for List 3 were set at an ad valorem rate of 10 percent but will increase to 25 percent at the beginning of the new year. List 3 targets about $200 billion worth of Chinese imports and unlike List 1 and List 2, there is no indication that there will be any kind of exclusion process for products in the final list.

Though List 3 was released less than a month ago, the administration threatened China with a potential List 4. This threat by the U.S. was publicly stated saying that if China retaliates against farmers or any other industries, they will begin to launch a process that aims to increase tariffs on an additional $267 billion worth of goods.
