​US, Turkey sue Vietnam for dumping in packaging, welding 

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 16:13 GMT+7

The United States and Turkey have proposed investigating Vietnam’s dumping policy for its wrapping materials and metal equipment used in welding.

According to Vietnam’s Trade Remedies Authority, the US Department of Commerce has received a proposal on imposing anti-dumping or anti-subsidy measures on several Vietnamese products.

They consist of packaging and sacks woven from the polymers of polyethylene and polypropylene; ramie – plants out of which fibers can be made; and other similar materials.

The enterprises who submitted the proposal are ProAmpac and Polytex Fibers, major producers of laminated woven sacks in the U.S.

They claimed that such products from Vietnam are receiving financial support and selling at a lower price than the normal one in the American market.

This situation is supposed to be greatly detrimental to the United States’ domestic production of packaging and sacks.

The American administration is expected to open an investigation on March 27 if the companies can corroborate their claims of the impact.

A few days earlier, the Turkish Ministry of Economy issued a decision related to actions against dumping for metal wires utilized in arc welding imported from Vietnam, said Vietnam’s Trade Office in Turkey.

The move followed a lawsuit filed by Gedik Welding and Oerlikon, large manufacturers of welding products.

Vietnam’s Trade Remedies Authority said the Turkey investigative agency may formulate a conclusion based on available evidence if the parties involved fail to present sufficient or accurate information, or behave uncooperatively.
