India places retaliatory tariffs on USIndia is now imposing increased tariffs on 28 U.S. products including apples, almonds and walnuts, a move seen as a retaliatory act.

The new tariffs on $240 million worth of goods went into effect Sunday and include levies of up to 70%.

In early June, President Trump announced India would lose its trade privileges with the country as a beneficiary of the Generalized System of Preferences.

On Saturday, India amended a previous order “to implement the imposition of retaliatory duties on 28 specified goods originating in or exported from USA,” according to a government notification, which noted the existing rate would be preserved on goods for other countries.
