President Trump announced today that the fourth list of products from China subject to additional duties will go into effect September 1, 2019. On May 13, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative (“USTR”) issued a proposed List 4 which threatens to impose additional tariffs of on “essentially all” Chinese products imported into the U.S. that were not covered by previous section 301 pronouncements valued at approximate $300 million. Today, President Trump announced in a Tweet that 10% additional duties will be imposed on these goods. No formal announcement by the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) has been issued as yet.
