Turkey to limit foreign steel imports in response to US metal tariffs

Turkey has told the World Trade Organization it plans to impose steel import quotas from October 17 to protect the domestic steel industry.

Earlier this year, the United States doubled the previously-imposed import tariffs on Turkish aluminum and steel to 20 percent and 50 percent, respectively.

A trade dispute between Ankara and Washington has been deepening since March, when US President Donald Trump initially introduced the 10 and 25 percent duties on imports of aluminum and steel, respectively, from America’s trade partners, including Turkey. Ankara has called the tariffs unacceptable and pledged to take retaliatory measures.

The Turkish Trade Ministry said US extra tariffs were against the WTO rules.
