S. Korea among countries to face China's anti-dumping duties on stainless steel

Industry 13:47 July 22, 2019

SEOUL, July 22 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will face anti-dumping duties from China on some stainless steel products, industry sources said Monday.

Beijing's commerce ministry announced earlier in the day that it will impose anti-dumping duties on stainless steel billets and hot-rolled stainless steel plates imported from the European Union, Japan, Indonesia and South Korea.

The anti-dumping rates have been set at between 18.1 percent and 103.1 percent, and will start being applied Wednesday, according to China's commerce ministry.

POSCO, South Korea's top steelmaker, will face 23.1 percent duties on its stainless products, the industry sources said.

China initiated an anti-dumping probe in July last year.

Earlier, South Korea's trade ministry claimed that the volume exported by local steelmakers does not negatively impact Chinese companies, and anti-dumping regulations will not help the Chinese industry and could potentially have an impact on regional economies.
