DoC continues to monitor apparel imports from Vietnam

U.S. Department of Commerce (DoC) officials announced that, after reviewing the first six months of data from the monitoring program of apparel imports from Vietnam, there is insufficient evidence to warrant self-initiating an antidumping investigation.

“After a fair and objective analysis of the data, Commerce found insufficient evidence of dumping from Vietnam,” said Assistant Secretary for Import Administration David Spooner.

“The Department will continue to monitor apparel imports from Vietnam until the end of the Administration and work with all stakeholders to ensure an open and transparent monitoring process.”

Commerce examined import data for five different apparel product groups – trousers, shirts, underwear, swimwear and sweaters – from Vietnam during the six-month period, January to July 2007.

Of the 486 total 10-digit Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) lines for the five groups, 317 had no imports from Vietnam. Commerce then determined that of the remaining 10-digit HTS lines, many even had rising unit values.

Commerce then compared trends in unit values and import levels to other suppliers of these products to the United States, including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Thailand, Indonesia, DR-CAFTA (Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua), and other large suppliers of these goods, such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Macau and Cambodia.

Based on this comparison of unit values and import levels, Commerce concluded that there was insufficient evidence of dumping to self-initiate an investigation. Commerce will continue to monitor trade in these categories during the next six-month review that will begin in March 2008, after receipt of the January 2008 data.
