The Trump administration postpones duties on Chinese products in mid-December

The application of commercial duties for products imported from China to the USA postponed for three months: the 10% tax is therefore postponed, and even removed entirely for certain types of products.

Originally the new import taxes had to become operational starting from next September 1st. The new decision seems to be designed not to affect North American consumers, and the retailer industry in general, at a time like the one before Christmas, which historically sees a large number of electronic products invade the market.

The list of products with duties moved in mid-December includes mobile phones, laptops, consoles, screens, some types of games as well as products related to clothing and footwear. For some other products the tariffs have been completely canceled, but at the moment it has not been given a detailed list of what these products are.
