US - China Trade War Update and How It May Affect Our Consumer Product Clients

June 6, 2019
Arnold & Porter Webinar

The Trump Administration has increased the tariff rate on a wide array of products imported from China and is poised to impose new tariffs on even more imports from China. Clients in the consumer products industry are particularly affected by recent Trump Administration actions. This webinar addresses issues related to the US -China trade negotiations and tariff announcements, and opportunities for companies to lower tariff risks.

  • Tariffs have recently increased from 10% to 25% on imports worth approximately $200 billion. US companies harmed by the increase may soon have an opportunity to seek an exclusion from those tariffs. This webinar will address possible exclusion opportunities for our consumer products clients.
  • The Trump Administration is considering imposing tariffs of 10%-25% on approximately $300 billion of additional imports, including a large number of consumer products. This webinar will address steps companies can take to have their priority products removed from the list of goods targeted for tariffs.
