希尼尔翻译公司（www.sinosenior.com.cn）2018年8月15日了解到：Peak Pegasus, a cargo ship
that has been circling off the Chinese coast for over a month will
finally dock at Dalian’s Beiliang port on August 11, Liaoning Maritime
Safety Administration told CGTN’s reporter on Friday.
The cargo ship, owned by JPMorgan Asset Management, left Seattle
on June 8 on a month-long voyage to the northeastern Chinese city of
Dalian. The trade conflict between the US and China was sparked just as
it left, with the US imposing tariffs on billions of dollars’ worth of
The Peak Pegasus was due to deliver its 70,000-ton cargo of
soybeans on July 6, but missed the tariff deadline. Offloading those US
soybeans in China would incur a 25 percent tariff, adding around six
million US dollars to the cost of bringing them into the country,
according to the Guardian.
The American Soybean Association (ASA) has expressed "extreme
disappointment" in the US move of imposing further tariffs on Chinese
goods, which they believe will "needlessly hurt soybean growers and
rural communities" in America. The ASA once again called on the
administration to find a non-tariff solution to address its trade issue
with China, such as utilizing soybeans as the largest agricultural
export to help reduce the US trade deficit with China.
China imported about 33 million tons of soybeans from the US last
year and takes about 62 percent of all US soybean exports annually.
China’s Sinograin, the group that handles the state grain
stockpiles, is also the purchaser of these US soybeans brought by Peak
Pegasus. The company will settle the relevant import duties and tax
according to the customs regulations of China.
