The Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council will continue to exclude the above agricultural products from the additional tariffs on U.S. goods, according to sources with the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Commerce.

This came after the United States had recently released three lists on exempting additional tariffs on over 400 types of Chinese products.

China has a huge market, and the prospects for importing high-quality U.S. farm products are broad. China hopes the U.S. will continue to meet China halfway and create favorable conditions for bilateral cooperation in agriculture and other sectors, said sources with the relevant departments of China.
