The Chinese government issued tariff exemptions on 16 products, including shrimp, fish meal and cancer treatment drugs.
Chinese importers can apply for a refund of tariffs already levied on 12 of the products. Four products, including whey, are eligible for the exemption but not for refunds.
The exemptions will start September 17 and last for a year. China’s State Council Tariff Commission, which made the announcement, said it will continue to review exemption requests and announce new lists in the future.
This is a developing story.
