CHINA TO REMOVE US HARDWOOD LUMBER IMPORT TARIFFS

Dear AHEC Members,

Based on reports from the Agricultural Specialist at the US Embassy in Beijing as well as the Chinese Ministry of Finance, the Chinese government will remove US hardwood lumber import tariffs starting on February 28th for one year.

This announcement was made around 4pm Beijing time and we are still working to clarify exactly what species will be included. It also appears that Chinese companies will be able to “apply for refunds of collected duties within six months from Feb 21.” View the English statement from the Ministry of Finance here.

Of course, this situation is still developing and we are working to define exactly which HS codes will be included in this tariff removal. We will update you as we receive more information.

 

Best,
