China to exempt 'some' U.S soybean, pork from tariffs

China said it will offer a tariff waiver to 'some' imports of U.S soybean and pork, in the latest sign of easing trade tensions between Beijing and Washington.

The two sides are working towards a partial deal that includes a promise to increase the purchase of U.S farm produce.

"The Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council is carrying out the exclusion of some soybeans, pork and other commodities based on applications from enterprises," the finance ministry said in a statement.
