Brazilian government signals negotiations with US over steel tariffs

The government of the United States will start negotiations with Brazil over the tariffs set on steel and aluminium imports, Brazilian president Michel Temer said.

The import duties, set for March 23, will not be applied to Brazilian products before negotiations between the countries are concluded, Temer said late on Wednesday March 21, according to a report from the country's official news agency, Agência Brasil.

US President Donald Trump set blanket tariffs of 25% on steel imports and 10% on aluminium imports on March 8.
