美国将一些中国医疗产品排除在关税之外

2020-3-15 16:25

 

据路透社报道,美国贸易代表办公室表示,已批准对从中国进口的一些医疗产品免除进口关税,包括口罩、听诊器罩和血压计袖袖。


在美国应对可能使其医疗体系不堪重负的冠状病毒疫情之际,这些国家被排除在外。


本月早些时候,美国贸易代表办公室批准了对其他中国医疗产品的豁免,包括洗手湿巾和检查手套。


在中美贸易谈判白热化的背景下,美国总统唐纳德·特朗普于2019年9月1日对中国商品实施了第四轮关税。


医疗产品的关税最初设定为15%,但在2月15日降至7.5%,这是中美第一阶段贸易协定的一部分。


该协议将对从中国进口的价值约3700亿美元的商品征收关税,其中包括价值约2500亿美元的商品征收25%的关税。

 

The US Trade Representative’s office said it has granted exclusions from import tariffs for some medical products imported from China, including face masks, stethoscope covers and blood pressure cuff sleeves, Reuters reports.

The exclusions were granted as the United States grapples with a coronavirus outbreak that threatens to strain its healthcare system.

Earlier this month, USTR granted exclusions for other Chinese medical products, including hand sanitizing wipes and examination gloves.

The products were included in a fourth round of tariffs on Chinese goods imposed by President Donald Trump on Sept. 1, 2019, amid heated US-China trade negotiations.

The tariff rate on the medical products was initially set at 15 percent, but was lowered to 7.5 percent on Feb. 15 as part of the Phase 1 US-China trade agreement.

The deal leaves in place tariffs on about US$370 billion worth of imports from China, including 25 percent duties on goods valued at around US$250 billion.
