Mexico eyes more steel import probes

Keywords: Tags  Canacero, Mexican steel imports, anti-dumping

MEXICO CITY — The Mexican steel industry is working with the government to try to establish duties on unfair steel imports and to launch new investigations into unfair trade practices, the country’s steel association, Canacero, said.

The investigations will focus largely on steel exports from countries outside the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) region, Canacero said.

The Mexican government’s department of international trade practices has already opened anti-dumping investigations into steel exported from China, South Korea and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Mexico imported 143,219 tonnes of Chinese steel in the first quarter of 2013, up 18.4 percent from 120,934 tonnes in the same period last year.
