The U.S. has announced some of the new 10% tariffs on $300 billion of Chinese imports, scheduled to become effective September 1, 2019, will be delayed until December 15, 2019.
Products being postponed until December include cell phones, laptop computers, video game consoles, certain toys, computer monitors, and certain items of footwear and clothing.
Meanwhile, certain products are being removed from the tariff list based on health, safety, national security and other factors and will not face the additional tariffs of 10% – the list is pending issuance by the USTR.
