Reduced Tariffs on Forestry Products

From The National Hardwood Lumber Association

The Trade and Tariff situation with China has moved to phase three.

On Monday, President Trump announced that the U.S would impose tariffs of 10% on approximately $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to the United States effective Monday, September 24, 2018. Tariffs will rise to 25% on January 1, 2019. Following in this newsletter is the press release from the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR). This action is the final step in imposing a third set of tariffs announced on July 10, 2018. Tariffs already exist on $50 billion in Chinese goods.

On Tuesday night the Chinese government announced they would proceed with retaliatory tariffs on U.S. products in response to the Trump Administration's imposition of 10% tariffs, including a variety of hardwood and hardwood products. Retaliatory tariffs will be imposed on $60 billion worth of U.S. exports at either a 5 percent or a 10 percent rate, starting the same day - Monday, September 24, 2018 starting at 12:01 a.m.

China's latest list of retaliatory tariffs does not appear to be changed from the proposed list released in early August. What has changed is the tariff rates on hardwoods which have reduced from a high of 25% proposed in August to 10% for most hardwood lumber and logs. Forest product numbers begin with 44 and start on page 11. Initial review indicates that tariffs will be applied as follows:

A 10 percent rate would apply to products originally slated for tariffs of 20% and 25%

A 5 percent rate would apply to products originally slated for tariffs 10% tariff and 5%

Please note that China has threatened to increase the rate back to 25% on by January 1, 2019 if the Trump Administration follows through with its threat to increase the rates on the latest round of tariffs on Chinese imports from 10%-25%. And, of course, there is nothing to stop the Chinese from increasing the rates earlier than January so the situation remains very fluid.

Washington, DC – As part of the United States’ continuing response to China’s theft of American intellectual property and forced transfer of American technology, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) today released a list of approximately $200 billion worth of Chinese imports that will be subject to additional tariffs. In accordance with the direction of President Trump, the additional tariffs will be effective starting September 24, 2018, and initially will be in the amount of 10 percent. Starting January 1, 2019, the level of the additional tariffs will increase to 25 percent.

The list contains 5,745 full or partial lines of the original 6,031 tariff lines that were on a proposed list of Chinese imports announced on July 10, 2018. Changes to the proposed list were made after USTR and the interagency Section 301 Committee sought and received comments over a six-week period and testimony during a six-day public hearing in August. USTR engaged in a thorough process to rigorously examine the comments and testimony and, as a result, determined to fully or partially remove 297 tariff lines from the original proposed list. Included among the products removed from the proposed list are certain consumer electronics products such as smart watches and Bluetooth devices; certain chemical inputs for manufactured goods, textiles and agriculture; certain health and safety products such as bicycle helmets, and child safety furniture such as car seats and playpens.

For specific details of items effected please contact your ASF CHB contact.
