Dear Valued Customer,

The President tweeted on August 1 that the US will assess a 10% tariff on List 4 beginning September 1. His tweets alleged that although China agreed to buy agricultural product from the U.S. in large quantities, it did not do so and despite promises from President Xi to stop the sale of Fentanyl to the United States, this never happened. Trade talks continue but during the talks, the U.S. will start, on September 1, to put a small additional tariff of 10% on the remaining 300 billion dollars of goods and products coming from China into our country. The USTR is expected to issue a Federal Register Notice, which will detail exactly which products are subject to tariffs.

As we had written in our newsletter dated June 24, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative had released its schedule of public hearings in connection with higher tariffs under the Section 301 process. The proposed additional tariffs would be tranche 4 (beginning at 10% but could increase up to 25 percent depending on the outcome of negotiations) of tariffs on some $300 billion worth of additional imports from China, affecting nearly all goods untouched by previous Section 301 tranches 1, 2 and 3, including a broad range of consumer and other goods, including apparel, footwear, home textiles, and toys and games, as well as numerous electrical and electronic articles and various other products. Excluded would be pharmaceuticals, certain chemicals used for prescription drugs, rare earth minerals and critical minerals. The public hearings kicked off June 17 and post-hearing rebuttal comments were due by July 2.

The chart below is an estimated list of tariff numbers that could be included in Tranche 4:
