The Trump administration has announced that it will allow foreign governments to transport goods through the United States through ports in Michigan, Ohio and Texas.
The announcement is a boon to a burgeoning business of shipping cargo through customs and borders with countries like India and China, and is a major boost for a Trump administration that has pushed for increased tariffs and other restrictions on the Chinese government.
The White House said Tuesday that the U,S.
will allow shipments of cargo through ports with a capacity of 50,000 or more people, a number that has not been seen since before President George W. Bush took office.
The new policy would also allow ships to be able to transport more than 5,000 containers.
The U.K. will be among the first countries to start shipping through the new system, said U.A.E. Trade Minister Simon Kelly, who is leading a task force on the issue.
He said the U and the U-K.
would have an agreement on shipping standards and a joint declaration to move forward on the agreement, and would sign on to the pact in the coming days.
While the move will help the U.-K.
in its fight against the Panama Canal, it will also allow countries like Canada and India to ship more cargo through those ports, which could pose a challenge for American officials.
In the past, the U., the U .
K. and other countries have faced challenges with the Panama canal, and the Obama administration had tried to push for a more open and cooperative relationship with those countries.
Under the new agreement, which is scheduled to take effect in 2018, the Trump administration would be able send U.N. inspections of the Panama and Panama-Guatemala waterways and expedited inspections of U.C.L.A.’s facilities, though there will still be restrictions on shipping and other things that are required by the UNAIDS treaty.
Kelly said that the Trump team has decided to move in this direction after concluding a new bilateral trade agreement with Panama, which includes some restrictions on what countries can ship.
The U.D.G. is expected to announce in the next couple of weeks that it has signed a new trade agreement, but no one knows whether that will include a similar arrangement with Panama.
