According to the Federal Register, the US is set to increase the tariffs on Chinese goods from 10% to 25%. The increase in tariffs are goods specified on “List 3” that were initially set to increase in March 1st in hopes the US and China could reach a trade deal.

The Federal Register notes that China has not followed through with their previous commitments in earlier negotiation rounds, resulting in the new expected increase.
