Anti-dumping duty on polyester yarn imports
May '10
The Minister of Industry, Débora Giorgi has released a notification which imposes anti-dumping measures on imports of polyester textured yarn originating in the People's Republic of China, Indonesia and Taiwan, in the form of ad valorem tariffs of 14.20% for China and 6.17% to 7.52% for Taiwan and Indonesia.

The resolution, published today in the Official Gazette and signed by the Minister Giorgi, is based on reports by technical teams from the Ministry of Industry, Trade and SMEs, which determined the existence of injury to the domestic industry by imports of these products.

The report states that, domestic production of polyester textured yarn employs 700 workers, who would be at risk of losing their jobs if the anti-dumping duty is not applied. The market share of domestic companies in sales of polyester yarn has fallen from 49% to 19% in recent years and the market share of all these three countries has increased from 30% to 46%.

The investigation also concluded that the prices of products imported from China, Indonesia and Taiwan were not only lower than the average price of domestic production, but up to 25% below the cost of local production. This situation resulted in very low yields for domestic producers, who had to sell very low prices, below their costs to keep their factories running.
