The US and Australia are looking at ways to exempt Australia from proposed tariffs on steel and aluminium. President Donald Trump has used Twitter to confirm he and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull are in discussions along these lines. The US is planning to impose 25 per cent tariffs on steel and 10 per cent tariffs on aluminium. Innes Willox, the CEO of the Australian Industry Group, while welcoming the possibility of exemptions, noted they would only apply to shipments from Australia, and not from shipments from Australian firms in other markets. See below for Trump’s tweet.
