US President Donald Trump has signed proclamations that remove tariffs on aluminium and steel imports from Canada and Mexico with effect from Monday.

“Any imports of steel articles from Canada and Mexico that were admitted into a U.S. foreign trade zone under ‘privileged foreign status’ …. prior to 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time on May 20, 2019, shall not be subject upon entry for consumption made after 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time on May 20, 2019, to the additional 25 percent ad valorem rate of duty as imposed by Proclamation 9705, as amended,” the proclamation on imported steel said.

 A similar proclamation was published with regard to imported aluminium.
