China withdraws import duties on US broiler chickens

China dropped antidumping and antisubsidy duties on U.S. white-feathered broiler chickens, effective Feb. 27, following a WTO ruling amid a growing trade spat between the two nations, Reuters reported.

The World Trade Organization ruled in January that Beijing should lower its tariffs, which were first imposed in 2010 and extended for five years in 2016, according to the report

However, China will maintain a ban on imports of U.S. poultry, poultry products and eggs imposed in 2015 due to avian influenza.

The U.S. recently slapped duties on Chinese washing machines and solar panels, and is mulling options for tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from China and other countries.

Beijing, meanwhile, has initiated an antidumping probe into U.S. sorghum imports worth almost $1 billion in 2017. U.S. soybeans imports worth $14 billion may also be caught up in the increasing trade tensions.

The withdrawal of the levy coincides with the U.S. visit of Liu He, Chinese President Xi Jinping's top economic adviser, for trade talks, a move that reportedly reflects Beijing's willingness to work with Washington to address trade issues.
