INDUSTRY NEWS
China's Tariffs, CCIC, Buying Slowdown Affects US markets; OCC for US Mills Holds Across the Country


China continues to shake up recovered paper markets in the USA in several ways as it has slowed its buying of secondary fiber, leaving more material in the USA. Ample supply of old corrugated containers (OCC) remained in the USA as China's demand has weakened, industry contacts told PPI Pulp & Paper Week this week.
In addition, contacts reported difficulty moving material overseas related to continual slowdowns from China's CCIC (China Certification and Inspection Group) and its recent 25% tariff on recovered paper imports. US recovered paper pricing mostly stabilized from the month prior as a result.

  • President Donald Trump hit Chinese imports to the US with massive tariffs on Thursday.
  • China responded with tariffs on US products.
  • Tariffs are taxes on imports designed to boost US production of goods.
  • The new tariffs will cause costs to go up for businesses that use imported goods from China - and possibly jump prices for consumer goods, too.
President Donald Trump's  tariffs on $16 billion worth of Chinese goods went into effect at midnight on Thursday, prompting a swift response from the Chinese.
The Trump administration said the tariffs are necessary to protect national security and the intellectual property of US businesses. Trump has also repeatedly expressed a desire to shrink the US's trade deficit with China and protect American businesses from being undercut by Chinese producers.
 Full story here.
