U.S. to maintain dumping duties on Vietnamese shrimp

The U.S. Department of Commerce this week announced the final results of the agency’s five-year “sunset” review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmw ater shrimp from Vietnam and, consistent w ith the agency’s determinations in the sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on shrimp from India, Brazil, China, and Thailand, found the revocation of the antidumping duty order “would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping” in the U.S. market.

As the result of the department’s five affirmative determinations, antidumping duties will remain in place if the U.S. International Trade Commission also affirmatively finds the revocation of the antidumping duty orders is likely to lead to material injury to the domestic shrimp industry by reason of subject imports. The commission has scheduled a public hearing for its sunset review on Feb. 1 in Washington, D.C.

The commission is tentatively scheduled to vote on whether to continue the antidumping duty orders on March 15.
