美國宣布部分中國商品加稅延期到12月15日,因為川普不想影響民眾買聖誕禮物

2019年8月13日晚間消息,

美國政府宣布,原訂9月1日對3000億美金商品加徵10%關稅,仍會如期進行,但會有部分商品獲得排除或延遲。

延遲的商品包括手機、電腦、遊戲機、部分服裝鞋子和一些玩具,延期到12月15日。

延期的原因是川普不希望影響美國民眾在聖誕節前購物。

至於哪些商品會列入排除名單,目前尚未透露。

排除的原因將基於健康、安全、國家安全或其他因素。

此前在8月13日當天,中國國務院副總理劉鶴和美國貿易代表萊特希澤及財政部長努欽通電話。

中方就美方計劃在下月對中國商品加徵關稅問題,進行了嚴正交涉。

雙方決定在未來兩星期內再次通話。

USTR Announces Next Steps on Proposed 10 Percent Tariff on Imports from China

Washington, DC – The United States Trade Representative (USTR) today announced the next steps in the process of imposing an additional tariff of 10 percent on approximately $300 billion of Chinese imports.

On May 17, 2019, USTR published a list of products imported from China that would be potentially subject to an additional 10 percent tariff. This new tariff will go into effect on September 1 as announced by President Trump on August 1.

Certain products are being removed from the tariff list based on health, safety, national security and other factors and will not face additional tariffs of 10 percent.

Further, as part of USTR’s public comment and hearing process, it was determined that the tariff should be delayed to December 15 for certain articles. Products in this group include, for example, cell phones, laptop computers, video game consoles, certain toys, computer monitors, and certain items of footwear and clothing.

USTR intends to conduct an exclusion process for products subject to the additional tariff.

The USTR will publish on its website today, and in the Federal Register as soon as possible, additional details and lists of the tariff lines affected by this announcement.
