USA slaps anti-dumping probe on India tyres... but goes soft on China
A US investigative body will go ahead with anti-dumping investigations into a certain category of tyres imported from India and Sri Lanka that may have a damaging effect on domestic industry even as it let China off the hook.
All six commissioners of the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) voted to
determine that there is a reasonable indication that the US industry is materially injured by imports of certain new pneumatic off-the-road tyres from India. The panel has determined that imports of these products from China are negligible.
Following the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the US Department of Commerce
will continue to conduct its investigations on imported products from India and Sri Lanka, with its
preliminary countervailing duty determinations due on April 4 and its preliminary anti-dumping duty determinations due on June 16.
