Over 8,000 types of imports now duty free in China

As 15 free trade agreements have taken effect, China now collects zero tariffs on more than 8,000 kinds of imported products. China has signed 16 agreements with 24 countries and regions, all but one now being in force, said Ministry of Commerce spokesman Gao Feng at a press conference.

Nearly one-third of China's imported products, mostly consumer oriented, are now duty free under the current free trade framework, offering substantial benefits to Chinese consumers.

Ecns.cn reports on how Chinese consumers can also buy low-cost, high-quality agricultural products from across the world during any season. Tropical fruit from ASEAN countries including durian, lichee and dragon fruit saw tariffs drop to zero from 15 to 30 percent in the past. More products will be duty free as China further develops its free trade zones.
