China imposes tariffs on Australian wine

·1-min read

China will impose anti-dumping measures on some Australian wine imports from March 28 for five years, the Ministry of Commerce says.

Importers bringing in wines related to the anti-dumping activities ruled by China will need to pay tax to China's customs authority, according to a ministry statement.

Beijing has launched trade strikes against a range of Australian products including coal, barley, beef, lobster and timber, with diplomatic relations in the doldrums.

Last year China said it would impost temporary tariffs on wine from Australia from November 28 for four months, but warned it could extend them.
