According to an announcement by the China Development and Reform Commission on October 14, China will continue to maintain import tariff quotas of major grain and cotton unchanged in 2010.

Import quotas of cotton will be 894,000 tons. Imports within these quotas will be imposed low tariff at about 1 percent, but once imports exceed the quotas, then the tariff will be increased substantially.
