Australian dumping commission has initiated an anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigation against painted steel strips from China and Vietnam. The commission has sought relevant answers from stakeholders before July 3.
Signode Packaging Group had filed a complaint against imported painted steel strips from these countries. Products under investigation include carbon coloured steel with 12-33mm width and thickness of 0.5-1.5mm. Australian manufacturers state Chinese steel products are priced lesser than normal value, which affects the domestic producers.
The commission will examine imports into Australia from China in the period April 1, 2019, to March 31, 2020, to verify injury caused to domestic manufacturers.
The Australian government has launched three anti-dumping investigations on China this year, including a probe into aluminium micro extrusions from Guangdong Jiangshen Aluminium and Guangdong Zhongya Aluminium.
