First Decision Expected In January On Chinese Anti-Dumping Petition

A coalition of American hardwood plywood manufacturers filed an anti-dumping petition with the U.S. Department of Commerce and the International Trade Commission. The petition asserts that Chinese producers of hardwood plywood receive illegal subsidies from the Chinese government which cause substantial injury to the U.S. industry. In early January, the Commerce Department and ITC are expected to provide a preliminary determination on how to proceed.
