U.S CUSTOMS SAY HONG KONG IMPORTS TO BE LABELLED MADE IN CHINA

According to a US government notice posted on Tuesday, goods made in Hong Kong for export to the United States will need to be labeled as made in China after September 25.

The move follows China’s imposition of a national security law on Hong Kong and a US decision to end the former British colony’s special status under US law, escalating bilateral tensions that were already rising over trade war tariffs and the handling of the coronavirus outbreak.

According to the US Customs and Border Protection notice, the latest step will see Hong Kong companies subject to the same trade war tariffs levied on mainland Chinese exporters, should they make products subject to these duties.

It said that 45 days after its publication, goods “must be marked to indicate that their origin is ‘China.'”
