Trump Keeps Punitive Tariffs on U.S. Travel Goods from China at 10% “Until Further Notice”
Earlier this week, the Trump administration finally issued the official notice that punitive tariffs on U.S. travel goods imports from China will remain at 10% “until further notice.” Trump had previously announced that punitive tariffs would increase to 25% on March 2. Even though the official notice wasn’t published until March 5, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) thankfully issued a February 28 CSMS message announcing it had already reprogrammed their systems to keep the punitive tariff at 10%. President Trump announced the delay in the increase as negotiations continue between the U.S. and China on a deal to end the China trade war. President Trump and Chinese President Xi have tentatively scheduled a March 27 meeting at Mar-a-Lago to finalize a deal. TGA, as part of Americans for Free Trade (@TariffsHurt), continues to fight the tariffs.
