NEW YORK — U.S. electrical steel producers "have been shut out" of China by anti-dumping and countervailing duties imposed by the Chinese government, according to AK Steel Corp. executive vice president and general counsel David Horn.

Horn spoke to the Congressional-Executive Commission on China at a Jan. 15 hearing in Washington to address China’s compliance with World Trade Organization (WTO) regulations, which the United States has challenged.

U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman said recently that the government has "requested consultations with China on its failure to bring anti-dumping and countervailing duties on U.S. exports of grain-oriented flat-rolled electrical steel (GOES) into compliance with its WTO obligations."
