NWC LIFE CHANEL – AMY A. KREIC – WENATCHEE – Washington Apples are on China’s tariff target list as that country threatens to retaliate against US tariffs on Chinese Steel and Aluminum exports.

According to an official with the Chinese Commerce Ministry they’re considering a 25 percent tariff on pork and aluminum scrap, mirroring Trump’s 25 percent charge on steel, according to the Commerce Ministry.

A second list of goods including wine, apples, ethanol and stainless steel pipe would be charged 15 percent, the same margin as Trump’s tariff hike on aluminum.

The looming trade war worries Washington Apple Commission President, Todd Fryhover, who commented on the situation in an earlier interview with NCWLIFE News Director Steve Hair.
