   The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative has released its third round of imported products from China that are now exempt from the so-called Section 301 tariffs.
    On July 6, the Trump administration imposed tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports as part of its Section 301 investigation of China’s trade policies. At the same time, however, it allowed U.S. companies to seek exclusions for their Chinese imports — if they could show that the products are only available from China, the tariffs cause “severe economic harm” and the products are not strategic to the “Made in China 2025” or other Chinese industrial programs.
    USTR accepted these Section 301 exclusion requests through Oct. 9. In December, it announced the first round of tariff exclusions, which was followed by a second round in March.
    This latest round of exclusions includes 21 specific tariff product descriptions, which cover 348 separate exclusion requests. These exclusions retroactively apply to imports made after the July 6 tariff imposition.

    Included in this third round of tariff exclusions are pumps designed for countertop appliances for serving beer; roller machines for cutting, etching or embossing paper, foil or fabric; water oxidizers and chlorinators; ratchet winches used in textile fabric strapping; elevators and conveyors for moving minerals; counterweights and carriage apparatus for forklifts; drill sharpening machine parts; outer shells of hydraulic accumulators; mechanical awning and shade parts; certain metal working tools; stainless steel watercraft steering wheels; certain brass and bronze pressure regulators; certain aluminum pipe brackets; steel push pins and C-poles; ball bearings not exceeding 30 millimeters; soldering iron and machine parts; motor vehicle gear shift switch assemblies; heat pump and air conditioning condenser pressure switches; and instruments for measuring or checking voltage or electrical connections.

When a port authority opens the door for a long-term agreement with a terminal operator, long-term investment and infrastructure development can follow in earnest under that model.

The Port of New York & New Jersey is called by 42 liner services that directly connect it to regions outside North America, 11 of which call Asia, according to BlueWater Reporting's Port Dashboard tool.
