Australian exporters have capitalized on the lower tariffs and since 2014 Australian wine exports to China increased to $723 million (140 million liters) from $250 million (40 million liters). In contrast, U.S. wine exports to China have remained subject to full duties and have been virtually unchanged over the past 5 years, peaking in volume terms at 17 million liters in 2014.
