China says postal fees to rise after US complaint

BEIJING (AP) ó Fees paid by China to the United States and other countries to deliver packages will nearly triple through 2025 under an agreement by the global postal union following complaints by Washington, the Chinese post office said Tuesday.

Payments will rise 27% next year and by 164% in total through 2025 under the Sept. 25 agreement by members of the Universal Postal Union, the State Postal Bureau said in a statement.

The Trump administration complained the U.S. Post Office was subsidizing Chinese exporters, which it said pay too little to deliver the vast volume of packages generated by online commerce.

Washington threatened to pull out of the 192-member group, which other members said would disrupt global postal operations.

2. I buy costume jewelry sometimes on Amazon that are shipped from China that are cheap.

The cost of shipping is very small, I guess those prices are going to go up. Another thing mf45 has screwed us consumers again.

I am so sick of his cult members in slavish lockstep to him while they are also going to get screwed over and then heíll tell them itís the Democrats fault while he is the one to blame. Itís disgusting that there are 50 million people in the US who are totally dumb and brainwashed by the ultimate conman. These people are traitors not patriots to our constitution and the rule of law.

5. Cost of shipping might have actually been being paid by the US postal service then

which could explain why postage charges were so low

and getting it shipped here for next to nothing.
