EU may lift anti-dumping duty on imports of bed-linen

The anti-dumping measures imposed in the past, on imports of bed-linen from Pakistan seems set to expire on its last date on March 5, 2009, since not a single country has filed an application to review the measures by the first week of December, the last date to file applications concerning the same.

The textile industry has reasons to celebrate for, if the decision is revoked from March 5, it will mean an additional source of revenue for the textile exports sector in Pakistan in these troubled times. This duty, which was initially imposed in early 2004, by enforcing a duty of 13.1 percent, was vehemently opposed by exporters.

Due to the opposition the European Commission announced a partial review, which led to the anti-dumping duty being lowered to 9.9 percent in the first review and further brought down to 7.6 percent and was finally reduced to 5.8 percent in May 2006. The textile sector had lobbied hard to have even the 5.8 percent duty removed.

Fibre2fashion spoke to Mr. Shabbir Ahmed, Chairman, Pakistan Bedwear Exporters Association who said, “The anti-dumping duty, imposed by the European Commission duty will be lifted from March 5, 2009 on imports of bed-linen from Pakistan. A written notification will be issued after that date”.

According to experts from the industry the country has lost nearly US $250-300 in exports of bed-linen since the day the anti-dumping duty was imposed, to the advantage of neighbouring Asian competitor countries like China, India and Indonesia, who grew their bed-linen exports to EU during this period.
