Eye on Mining: Tariffs coming to fabricated steel imports

WASHINGTON D.C — Tariffs are coming to fabricated steel imports from Mexico and China.

The U.S Commerce Department made that decision Monday.

Agency officials say the decision came after an investigation into government subsidies assisting companies that export steel from Mexico, China, and Canada.

The agency says it determined Canadian exports do not warrant the tariff, but those from Mexico and China do.

Mexico’s economy ministry says the decision was unrelated to tariffs that the U.S. lifted on Mexican steel and aluminum in May.

The Commerce Department says the determination is preliminary, but the tariff goes into effect immediately.
