ITC continues AD case on Chinese & Taiwanese narrow woven ribbons

August 27, 2009 - United States Of America

The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is threatened with material injury by reason of imports of narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge from China that are allegedly subsidized and from China and Taiwan that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value.

All six Commissioners voted in the affirmative.

As a result of the Commission's affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue to conduct its countervailing and antidumping duty investigations on imports of these products from China and Taiwan, with its preliminary countervailing duty determination due on or about October 2, 2009, and its preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about December 16, 2009.

The Commission's public report Narrow Woven Ribbons with Woven Selvedge from China and Taiwan (Investigation Nos. 701-TA-467 and 731-TA-1164-1165 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 4099, August 2009) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
