Trade and Tariffs Update – Delay in Tariff Increases

September 12, 2019

President Trump tweeted on September 11, 2019 that the increase in tariffs on Lists 1 thru 3 from 25% to 30% is DELAYED! The decision stems from multiple considerations – China’s announcement of the exemption of 16 items from retaliatory tariffs on U.S. products and China’s celebration of its 70th anniversary.

Whatever the reason, the tariffs have been delayed until October 15, 2019. Trade talks are scheduled to resume sometime in October.
