As expected, China has announced today that it will raise tariffs on US$60 billion goods, starting 1 June. The move comes after the US more than doubled tariffs on US$ 200 billion of Chinese imports.

China will increase tariffs on more than 5,000 products, with the new rates ranging from 5% to 25%, the Chinese Finance Ministry said today. 

The Chinese tariffs raise will be imposed at the following levels: 

  • 25% tariffs on 2,493 items from current 10%
  • 20% tariffs on 1,078 items from current 10%
  • 10% tariffs on 974 items from current 5%
  • 5% tariffs to continue on 595 items. 

Beijing previously set additional rates of 5 per cent and 10 percent on 5,207 US products worth US$60 billion in September 2018, and warned at the time that it would counter any higher tariffs imposed by Washington on Chinese products.
