China plans to exempt 16 products from the first round of extra tariffs on U.S. imports, Chinese media reported Wednesday. That exemption will take effect September 17, the South China Morning Post reported, citing the Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council. Those lists of exempted goods include seafood products and drugs to fight cancer, according to separate media reports. U.S. and Beijing negotiators are due to meet in Washington in October for a fresh round of trade talks. Meanwhile, Hu Xijin, the editor of the state-owned Global Times tweeted that “China will introduce important measures to ease the negative impact of the trade war. The measures will benefit some companies from both China and the U.S.”
