“The trade delegation, led by Vice Premier Liu He, had originally planned to set off earlier in the month but had to change plans after U.S. President Donald Trump sent a tweet here claiming that he would sign the Phase 1 trade deal with China on Jan. 15.” -Reuters, Jan. 5, 2020

All Section 301 tariffs that were implemented are still in effect, unless granted exclusion via List 1, 2 ,3 or 4A process.

  • List 4A Tariff Exclusion Petition USTR deadline is January 31, 2020. If you are taking part in SFIA’s petition process, ALL exclusion petitions are due to SFIA by January 21, 2020.
  • List 4B Tariffs were never implemented and are “suspended indefinitely,” but President Trump suggested he will go back to them if Phase Two negotiations are unproductive.

SFIA will be assisting all interested parties by organizing and leading a petition process for List 4A. Please click here for more information.
