Latest Tariffs on Chinese Goods Hit Construction Materials

Updated AGC Tariff Resources Available
On Sept. 17, the Trump administration announced a 10 percent tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to the U.S., including a wide range of construction materials and supplies. Scheduled to take effect on Sept. 24, the complete list of Chinese goods falling under this latest round of tariffs numbers in the thousands. Starting Jan. 1., 2019, the level of tariffs on these Chinese goods will increase to 25 percent, unless progress is made on trade negotiations with the administration. You can find updated AGC tariff resources here, which include: AGC’s Primer on 2018 Trade Action Affecting the Construction Industry, and AGC memos on contractual considerations private and federal/federal-aid contractors should consider in light of the tariffs.
