China puts tariffs on Australian wine

China will impose temporary anti-dumping measures on wine imported from Australia from November 28, the Ministry of Commerce said on Friday, in a move likely to further escalate trade and diplomatic tensions between Beijing and Canberra.

Importers bringing in investigated products will need to pay deposits to China's customs authority, which will be calculated based on different rates the authority has assigned to various companies, according to the statement.

On Friday, the Ministry of Commerce said it was taking the temporary measure in response to "substantive harm caused to the relevant domestic wine industry".

China frequently leverages its huge market in diplomatic disputes, cutting off or limiting access when angered.

China in August began an anti-dumping probe into imports of Australian wine at the request of the Chinese Alcoholic Drinks Association.
