In a series of 4 tweets issued by President Trump on August 1, he announced the imposition of 10% additional tariff rates on the remaining 300 billion dollars of goods imported from China. This 4th tariff list is to go into effect on September 1st.
List 4 will cover a long list of products, including jewelry, apparel and footwear. All that will be left untaxed by the additional tariffs will be pharmaceuticals, certain medical goods, rare earth minerals and other critical minerals.
Janel is actively monitoring this situation and will provide updates as soon as they are available.
