India: Brazil expects China to end sugar import tariffs – official

Brazil expects that the Chinese government will not renew certain import tariffs on sugar, a Brazilian Agriculture Ministry official told reporters on Friday.

Agriculture Trade Secretary Orlando Leite Ribeiro said he did not know what the timeline was for the tariffs to end and that further questions should be directed to the Foreign Ministry. When first announced by China in May 2017, the additional sugar tariffs were set to last three years.
