Link: Mass Confusion re 301 Tariffs
To this point, nothing official has been published about changes to the 301 tariffs on Chinese goods, not even a Tweet! What has circulated is the comments from President Trump on October 11 from the White House that negotiations with the Chinese were going well enough that the rise in tariffs from 25% to 30% to take effect on October 15, 2019 will not happen. There had been expectations that steps would also be taken regarding the List 4B tariffs which take effect on December 15, 2019. While some general press reports stated the List 4B tariffs were also impacted, the most reliable sources are quoting U.S. Trade Representation Lighthizer as saying if the “Phase 1” deal is consummated in writing, those tariffs could be cancelled.
