Brazil sets anti-dumping duties on Chinese tires
Brazil will levy anti-dumping duties on Chinese tires for five years, according to the Ministry of Commerce. The duty will be levied according to the weight of the tires and ranges from $1.08 to $2.17 per kilogram. The China Rubber Industry Association said a Brazilian anti-dumping investigation into Chinese tires started last year. The investigation mainly focused on 13- and 14-inch Chinese tires for cars. In 2008 and 2009, Brazil conducted an antidumping investigation and levied duties on cars imported from China.
