In an effort to refine its import mix, China will levy provisional taxes at historically low rates. Taxes will be lowered on imports of electric car parts, optical fiber-equipped communication devices, and advanced manufacturing equipment.

The nation will also reduce import taxes on commodities such as ethylene, ferro-nickel, and coal products. China, the world’s top producer and consumer of coal, will maintain a coal export tax of 10 percent, despite local miners’ requests to cut the taxes to 3 percent.

The actual tax rates have yet to be released. Details from China’s Finance Ministry will follow.
