China importers seek to lift tariffs on U.S. farm goods
The unnamed importers were talking to US suppliers about potential pricing and have applied to a Chinese government body with oversight of tariffs to lift the levies, the nearly identical reports in various media outlets said.
The importers were acting "according to the needs of the domestic market," the reports said.
No further details were given, such as which products might be affected.
The move may be a goodwill gesture after the US earlier this month was reported to have removed 110 Chinese export items from its own tariffs list. ■
