Share via E-Mail Bookmark WASHINGTON: The Trump administration will delay imposing a 10 per cent tariff on certain Chinese products, including laptops and cell phones, that had been scheduled to start next month, the Office of the US Trade Representative said on Tuesday (Aug 13). The USTR's action was published just minutes after China's Ministry of Commerce said Vice Premier Liu He conducted a phone call with US trade officials.

A separate group of products will also be exempt altogether,"based on health, safety, national security and other factors," it added. Technology investors welcomed news of the exemptions, pushing an index of chip stocks up 2.8 per cent, while shares of Apple surged more than 5 per cent. President Donald Trump said on Aug 1 he would impose a 10 per cent tariff on US$300 billion of Chinese goods, blaming China for not following through on promises to buy more American agricultural products. He also personally criticised Chinese President Xi Jinping for failing to do more to stem sales of the synthetic opioid fentanyl amid an opioid overdosing crisis in the United States.

The office plans to conduct an exclusion process for products subject to the additional tariff. Source: Reuters Read more: CNA
