24 Feb No antidumping, countervailing duties on Chinese truck, bus tires (updated)
The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that a U.S. industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of truck and bus tires from China that the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) has determined are subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.
Chairman Rhonda K. Schmidtlein and Commissioner Irving A. Williamson voted in the affirmative. Vice Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Meredith M. Broadbent and F. Scott Kieff voted in the negative. Commissioner Dean A. Pinkert did not participate.
As a result of the USITC’s negative determination, Commerce will not issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of these products from China.
The Commission’s public report Truck and Bus Tires from China (Investigation Nos. 701-TA-556 and 731-TA-1311 (Final), USITC Publication 4673, February 2017) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
The report will be available by March 15, 2017; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
