China is to impose temporarily low import tariffs on more than 600 energy and resource-consuming commodities next year, in a bid to promote domestic economic restructuring and resource conservation, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) announced Tuesday.

The targeted commodities comprise resource commodities, including coal, granite, and phosphate ore; key components for optic communications; medical products, including plasma and vaccine; and some advanced production machines, the MOF said in the statement.

It did not specify the duration and tariff rates.
