The extension of the 30-day exemption will depend on progress in NAFTA talks

The US administration plans to offer Mexico and Canada a temporary exemption from new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, White House official announced quoted by CEEMarketWatch. The United States will give both countries a 30-day exemption, which could be extended based on progress in North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) talks.

This announcement comes after US President Donald Trump proposed tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum imports in USA.
