Anti-dumping duty on PTA imports from Thailand & Korea
Aug '10
The Chinese Ministry of Commerce has made a final determination after investigation of PTA imports. The probe has come to a conclusion that, PTA originating from South Korea and Thailand has caused substantial damage to PTA industry in China and accordingly, will impose anti-dumping duties on PTA imports from these two countries.

South Korean PTA exporters like Hyosung Corp will pay 2.6 percent, Samsung Petrochemicals, 2.0 percent; SK Petrochemicals, 11.2 percent; Samnam Petrochemicals, 3.7 percent; KP Chemical, 2.0 percent; Taekwang Industrial, 2.4 percent and other Korean PTA exporters will have to pay anti-dumping duties amounting to 11.2 percent.

In case of PTA imports from Thailand, Indorama Petrochemicals will have to pay 16.9 percent; Siam Mitsui PTA Co, 6.0 percent; TPT Petrochemicals, 12.9 percent and other Thailand based PTA exporters will have to pay 20.1 percent anti-dumping duty when exporting PTA to China.

These anti-dumping duties have been made effective from August 12, 2010 and the duties would be imposed for a period of five years from the implementation date.

It may be recalled that the Ministry of Commerce had issued a notice in February 2009 and had decided to launch anti-dumping investigation against terephthalate imports originating from South Korea and Thailand. The investigated products are classified under tariff numbers; 29173611 and 29173619.

According to the survey results and provisions of Article 24 under "Anti-dumping Ordinance of the People's Republic of China ", a notice of the preliminary ruling was issued on February 2010, confirming that PTA imports were causing harm to China's domestic industry due to which it had suffered material injury.
