The Trump Administration's tariffs on China will not include art

19 September 2018 | Applicable law: US

On September 17, 2018, the Trump Administration published a revised list of Chinese goods that will be subject to US tariffs, totaling $200 billion worth of goods. 

The new list did not include Chinese art and antiquities, which were originally included in a prior version of the list released in July 2018.

The removal of art and antiquities of the list of Chinese goods was a result of protest from dealers and auction houses in the previous month.
