TGA Continues to Fight Trump’s 10% Punitive Tariffs on U.S. Imports of Travel Goods from China, Which Will Rise to 25% on January 1

On September 24, President Trump imposed a 10% punitive tariff on U.S. imports of ALL travel goods from China. Those tariffs will rise to 25% on January 1, 2019. The 10% tariffs are in addition to the tariffs we already pay on U.S. imports of travel goods. On September 26, TGA urged the Trump administration to create an exclusion process for the new tariffs. President Trump’s decision to not allow an exclusion process ignores the hardships these new duties will impose on the U.S. travel goods industry and its 100,000 American workers.
