The Interdepartmental Commission on International Trade (ICMT) has initiated an anti-dumping investigation against the import of coated carbon steel rolled products into Ukraine originating from the PRC.
According to the message in the "Uryadov courier " on December 19 of this year, the decision to initiate an investigation was made by the MCMT on the basis of a complaint by "Module-Ukraine " LLC, as well as the report and conclusions of the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine.
Based on the results of the consideration, the commission, in particular, found that the complaint contained sufficiently substantiated evidence, on the basis of which it can be assumed that the import of this type of rolled metal from China to Ukraine could be carried out at dumping prices, and this could harm the national producer. In particular, according to the materials of the complaint, during the study period (II half of 2017 - I half of 2020), the volumes of dumped imports from China grew during the study period in absolute terms, while the share of such imports accounted for more than half of total imports and consumption. With regard to production, the share of dumped imports ranged from 665% to 808%. At the same time, the prices of dumped imports were significantly lower than the level of prices and the cost of the domestic manufacturer of this product.
"Analysis of the dynamics of the main indicators of the applicant's financial and economic activities during the study period showed that there was a deterioration in a number of indicators, namely: a drop in sales, a loss of market share with an increase in consumption in the domestic market, the accumulation of stocks of finished products in warehouses, a decrease in production volumes, a decrease in the level of utilization of production capacities, a deterioration in the financial result from the sale of goods, a deterioration in liquidity, a decrease in investment ", - stated in the information of the MCMT.
In this regard, the Commission decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation against the import of such goods to Ukraine from China: flat rolled products of carbon steel, clad, galvanized or other coated, classified in subheadings 721070, 721090 and 721240 according to UKTVED.
The Ministry of Economy has been charged with the anti-dumping investigation.
