China to drop tariffs on 700 products, some are Ag
Jan. 2, 2019
China will remove tariffs on some ingredients for livestock feed including sunflower and canola meals. It will also cut export tariffs on nearly 100 goods including fertilizer.
This is the third round of tariff cuts announced by Chinese President Xi this year.
Bloomberg reports that U.S. exports will benefit from the cuts even though they are still subject to retaliatory tariffs as trade talks continue.
The U.S. and China have had several rounds of talks in recent weeks and plan to meet in person in January to discuss a broader trade truce.
