The ministry said in a statement on its website that the import tariffs on some cancer treatment drugs will be kept at zero. While products related to the Beijing Winter Olympics Games such as skiing gear and frozen fish would be dropped.

The ministry also added the country would also cut tariffs on some auto parts that would aid to lower carbon emissions. While adding that it was eliminating favorable rates on imports of pork and lead-acid battery parts and raising export tariffs for blister copper.

“The above changes … are made to safeguard the stability and security of domestic industrial and supply chains and support the economy’s cross-cyclical stable operations and long-term good momentum,” the ministry said to media.

It also published the tariff rates for different products under the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, a regional trade pact that will take effect from Jan. 1 next year.

In addition, China would exempt import tariffs for more goods from the least developed countries with which China has diplomatic ties, the finance ministry said in another statement.
