USTR seeks comments on Chinese trade complaint

Keywords: Tags  USTR, dispute settlement, WTO, steel pipe, oil country tubular goods, aluminum extrusions


NEW YORK — The U.S. Trade Representative’s Office (USTR) is seeking comment on China’s request for a dispute settlement panel at the World Trade Organization over alleged illegal subsidy duties on nonmarket economies.

China said that since 2006 the U.S. government has launched more than 30 countervailing duty investigations against its products—including steel pipe, oil country tubular goods and aluminum extrusions—that affect more than $7.3 billion in Chinese goods (amm.com, Nov. 30).

China’s previous attempt to establish a settlement panel was rejected by the United States.

Comments are due by Dec. 30.
