Lefaso turns tables on EU anti-dumping case

07
Dec '05
LEFASO, or Vietnam Leather and Footwear Association (Lefaso) says leather and footwear enterprises of Vietnam have stockplied enough evidence to defend its anti-dumping lawsuit filed by the European Commission (EC).

In a major indictment, eight surveyed footwear companies were found guilty of not satisfactorily meeting the EC-laid norms of market economy.

The five critereas fixed were based on business operation costs within a market, international standard accounting, the exchange rate, laws on bankruptcy and property, and the uncontrollability of the former subsidised economic system.

Nguyen Duc Thuan, Vice Chairman, Vietnam Leather and Footwear Association (Lefaso) stated categorically that their analysis of all the norms proved invalid as contended in the EC judgement.

The judgment penalised Lefaso slapping 130 percent tariff on its products, ultimately affecting the future of the company and its some 1 million employees from the industry.

Laura Atlee, Lefaso's attorney viewed the decision as "unfair" that the firms inspected did meet majority of the criteria regarding business operation costs.

She did not accept EC's line of argument that Vietnamese exporters did not have 80 percent export rate as controlled by Vietnam's Investment Law to get subsidy.
