Resources Available in Response to Trump Administration Tariffs

On September 17, the Trump administration announced the implementation of a 10 percent tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to the U.S., including a wide range of construction materials and supplies (see spreadsheet below for construction-related items). 

Scheduled to take effect on September 24, the complete list of Chinese goods falling under this latest round of tariffs numbers in the thousands. Starting January 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. 

Given these events, please see below for resources in regards to tariffs impacting construction materials and supplies.
