Anti-dumping charges, false allegations - API

Feb '08
Turkey has alleged Indonesia of dumping synthetic fiber yarn in the region during last year, and has initiated an anti-dumping investigation against the Asian country. This signifies that in 2007, there had been a considerable rise in exports of the country and Turkish manufacturers are suffering huge losses.

Statistics reveal that in the period from January to September, synthetic fibre yarn classified under Harmonized System (HS)55.09 and 55.10, reached only 15 million kg, worth US $34 million and 14 million kg, estimated at $44 million respectively.

Indonesian Textile Association (API) is strongly denying the anti-dumping charges. They are taking measures to evade such allegations. In an exclusive interview with Fibre2fashion, Mr Ernovian G Ismy, Executive Secretary, API, said, “Our exporting systems are already at agreement with the implementation of article VI of the general agreement on tariff and trade 1994, so we follow the rules.

We responded and answered the notification letter from the competent authority in Turkey, namely the Prime Minister under secretariat of foreign trade, General Directorate of import, Dumping and Subsidy Research Department.

We have also asked for official notice of the initiation on investigation alongwith questionnaire and non-confidential complaint, and further we are seeking for an extension of 6 weeks from the original deadline to accommodate and complete the response. In the meanwhile, we are coordinating with all local producers of yarns of man-made staple fibers, and in cooperation with Government we are trying to determine the next step for tackling the situation.”
