Laminated Woven Sacks from China in anti-dumping limelight
Jun '08
Department of Commerce finds unfair dumping and subsidization of Laminated Woven Sacks from the People's Republic of China.

• Commerce will soon publish a Federal Register notice, announcing its affirmative final determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations on imports of laminated woven sacks from the People's Republic of China (China).

• Dumping is when a foreign company sells a product in the United States at less than normal value. Subsidies are financial assistance from foreign governments that benefit the production, manufacture, or exportation of goods.

• Commerce determined that Chinese producers/exporters have sold laminated woven sacks in the United States at 64.28 to 91.73 percent less than normal value, and received net countervailable subsidies ranging from 29.54 to 352.82 percent.

• The final margin for Shandong Shouguang Jianyuanchun Co, Ltd. / Shandong Longxing Plastic Pack Co. Ltd. (SSJ) in the AD investigation is based on adverse facts available as this company failed to cooperate; Zibo Aifudi Plastic Packaging Co., Ltd. (Aifudi) received a final AD rate of 64.28 percent.

• In the CVD investigation, the final subsidy rates for all of the mandatory respondents are based on adverse facts available as these companies did not cooperate to the best of their abilities. Commerce accepted one voluntary respondent, Aifudi, and calculated a subsidy rate for this respondent of 29.54 percent.

• Additionally, in the AD investigation, Commerce determined that critical circumstances exist for one of the mandatory respondents and the separate rate companies, but do not exist for the other mandatory respondent and the PRC-wide entity. In the CVD investigation, we found that critical circumstances exist for the four non-cooperative mandatory respondents, but not for any other producers or exporters.

• As a result of the final AD determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to suspend liquidation of entries of subject merchandise and to collect a cash deposit or bond based on the final rates. For purposes of countervailing duties, suspension of liquidation will only resume if the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) issues an affirmative injury finding and Commerce issues a CVD order.

• The petitioners for these investigations are the Laminated Woven Sack Committee, an ad hoc association, and its individual members: Bancroft Bag, Inc. (LA); Mid-America Packaging, LLC (OH); Coating Excellence International, LLC (WI); Polytex Fibers Corp. (TX); and Hood Packaging Corp. (MS).
