Chi­nese tire firms urge ac­tion on US move

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

The Chi­nese tire in­dus­try has urged the gov­ern­ment to take de­ci­sive mea­sures against the anti-dump­ing and coun­ter­vail­ing du­ties im­posed on tires im­ported from China after the United States Depart­ment of Com­merce claimed on Mon­day that Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­ers ben­e­fited from gov­ern­ment sub­si­dies.

The US gov­ern­ment said that tires for pas­sen­ger cars and light trucks pro­duced in China were un­fairly sub­si­dized and should be sub­ject to puni­tive tar­iffs rang­ing from 17.7 per­cent to 81.3 per­cent, de­pend­ing on the man­u­fac­turer.

The United Steel­work­ers Union — which rep­re­sents 850,000 work­ers in North Amer­ica — urged US trade of­fi­cials to launch the anti-dump­ing case against cer­tain tires from China in June. (Photo 3)
