U.S. to Impose Tariff on Remaining $300 Billion in Chinese Imports
U.S. President Donald Trump announced yesterday that on September 1st, the United States would impose a 10-percent tariff on the remaining $300 billion worth of Chinese-made imports that so far have not been subject to a U.S. tariff.
Along with last year’s 10-percent tariff, this would mean that virtually everything related printers and copier/MFPs that have been made in China would now be subject to a 10-percent tariff.
Earlier this year, the United States had previously threatened to impose 25-percent tariff on those remaining $300 billion in Chinese goods, but then withdrew the threat.
