The US Trade Representative has released their list of about 1,300 tariff lines of imports from China, against which import duties of 25% would be imposed under the 301 Process.

Here is a link to the official Notice from USTR, with all the tariff lines/descriptions listed:

We are staying on it, as you can see the scope of products is broad, with heavy emphasis on industrial equipment, machinery and materials.

We’ll DEFINITELY be discussing this at the Off the Record at the T&T because this impacts shipping volumes in both directions across the Pacific. If you import or export between China and US, even if your products are not on the list, life will be different if these duties stick, and if China chooses to retaliate.
