Biden Exempts Four Asian Countries From Solar Panel Tariffs

United States President Joe Biden has exempted Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam from solar panel tariffs for two years to accelerate the US domestic production of clean energy technologies.

The White House announced Monday that the US would free the four Asian countries from import duties to ensure that the country has sufficient solar modules.

Biden has also urged Congress to pass tax cuts and additional investments to grow the country’s production of clean energy technologies.

The White House said the US deployed the most solar, wind, and batteries “in the United States history” last year under the administration’s clean energy and climate plan.

The Biden administration has decided on the tariff exemption amid the investigations of possible trade violations involving Chinese manufacturers allegedly evading the US duty rules on solar imports.

The White House said that the Biden administration would safeguard “the integrity and independence of all ongoing trade investigations.”
