Tariffs With Canada and Mexico Removed

Tariffs on steel and aluminum between the U.S., Canada and Mexico was removed on Friday, 17 May 2019. 

 

Less than a year ago the U.S. imposed a 25% tariff on steel and a 10% tariff on aluminum coming from Canada and Mexico.  The Trump administration relied on a rarely-used weapon in the US trade war arsenal Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 which lets the president impose tariffs on imports if the Commerce Department deems them a threat to national security.  The tariffs were imposed as a means to get Canada and Mexico to agree to measures that would prevent dumping and the importation of aluminum and steel from China that is unfairly subsidized.

 

 

In return Mexico and Canada imposed retaliatory tariffs on US metals, pork legs, apples, grapes, cheese and bourbon whisky, among other products.

 

The announcement on Friday that all tariffs will be removed will enable companies from the three countries to sell products across the border without having to worry about tariffs.

 

In the meantime, the U.S. Canada and Mexico will work to prevent cheap/subsidized imports of steel and aluminum from China entering the North American market.
