Turkey imposes anti-dumping duty on textile imports

Sep '09
The Turkish government began imposing anti-dumping duties on import of textiles from Indonesia from August 1, 2009. On the same day, it also imposed the same on shipments of bicycle and motorcycle tires, in response to what it calls dumping of these products into Turkey.

Deputy Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudrajat, has alleged that, Turkey imposed between 2-3 percent additional import duties on 12 Indonesian textile manufacturers, who had cooperated during the dumping investigation.

He also lambasted the Turkish Government on imposing an 8 percent anti-dumping duty on those companies who had not fully cooperated in the probe. These measures were imposed in response to a petition made by 22 textile companies in 2007.

These petitioners had alleged that textile producers from three countries, China, India and Indonesia were dumping sewing thread of man-made staple fibers; yarn (other than sewing thread) of synthetic, artificial staple and man-made staple fibers onto the Turkish market.

The companies accused of dumping were primarily PT Polysindo Eka Perkasa, PT Indo Liberty Textiles and PT Yans Manunggal Jaya; later, the allegation was extended to four other firms; PT Kamaltek, PT Sunrise Bumi Textile, PT Elegan Textile Industry and PT Apac Inti Corpora.
