Vietnam: China companies using fake 'Made in Vietnam' labels

By The Associated Press

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — Vietnam's government says it is taking more steps to prevent Chinese companies from using illegal "Made in Vietnam" labels to avoid high tariffs that have been imposed by the United States on Chinese goods.

The customs department says textiles, fisheries, farm products, tiles, honey, iron, steel and plywood are among the Chinese products that are most often being relabeled and then exported to a third country.

Vietnam's government portal said the customs department has ordered its offices to be more aggressive in checking the certificates of origin of products.

In a spiraling trade war, the United States is imposing 25% tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese goods. Beijing has counterpunched by targeting $110 billion worth of American products.
