“...The United States and other countries’ concerns have been addressed by allowing the Postal Service to self-declare its rates beginning in July 2020, while operators from other countries will transition to self-declared rates at phased levels over the next six years. ...”

The unjustified American subsidized mail delivery of Chinese packages can now be STOPPED COMPLETELY in July 2020. It appears that this compromise (between “immediately” and “never”) was the best we could get.

This is yet another accomplishment that Trump has accomplished with ZERO help from Congress. MAGA

It’s a sweetheart deal. I could never figure out how I could buy some gee-gaw from that auction site shipped all the way from China for $2.37. The same item might cost $10 or $20 if purchased here, because they have no sales tax, EPA regulations, Workers Comp, child labor laws, social security or FICA, minimum wage requirements, etc etc etc.

Then they ship the item to the nearest port, Long Beach or wherever, and USPS handles it from there at a loss. I can’t even mail an empty box across town for that kind of money, much less across the world.
