  • Trade Representative sought comments on the duties in May
  • Tariffs would have automatically ended without requests

The Biden administration will allow Trump-era tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese merchandise imports to continue while it reviews the need for the duties. 

The tariffs will continue after the administration received a formal request from businesses benefiting from them, the Office of the US Trade Representative said in a statement Friday. It opened the window for comments in May, and got hundreds of requests for them to remain.
