Tariff Increase Effective September 1

Please be advised that President Donald Trump has stated a 10 percent tariff will be imposed on List 4 goods as of September 1. List 4 includes nearly all goods imported from China that have not had a tariff imposed on them yet.

Trump’s reasoning for the tariff is a lack of agricultural purchases by China and their continued sale of fentanyl to the U.S. However, he indicated a desire to continue positive dialogue with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
