India’s Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) has levied an anti-dumping duty on aluminium alloy and zinc-coated flat-rolled steel products from China, Vietnam and South Korea. The duty would be effective Oct 15, 2019, for five years.
These duties will be in the range of $13.07-173.10/mt. A petition was filed by JSW Steel in 2019 after which the DGTR initiated an investigation on April 15, 2019. The petitioner believed these three countries should be treated as non-market economy countries.
The period of investigation was Oct 1, 2017- Sep 30, 2018 and the injury investigation period was from April 2015-March 2018.
