WASHINGTON — The political climate surrounding imports from China intensified Thursday when U.S. trade officials announced fines and seizures for illegally transshipped goods.
U.S. officials said they will charge an additional $80 million, or four million dozens, of apparel to China’s 2006 and 2007 quota levels because of goods that were shipped to the U.S. from China, but were mislabeled with 11 different countries of origin. Transshipping usually occurs with the intention of sidestepping quotas and tariffs.
