CHEMICALS

$1.6b

Average annual U.S. exports to Russia, 2008-10

Tariffs on cosmetics, plastics, and pharmaceuticals would average 5.3 percent, down from 6.7 percent

MACHINERY

$1.3b

Average duties on power and hand tools would decrease from 9.3 percent to 6.8 percent

$955m

Russia would lower average duties on plane engines from 10 percent to 5 percent

ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT

$753m

Average duties on equipment such as generators would go down to 6.1 percent, from 7 percent
