NEW YORK The Canadian International Trade Tribunal
(CITT) has decided there is a reasonable indication
that allegedly dumped and subsidized silicon metal from China
has injured or threatens to harm the Canadian silicon industry.
The CITTs inquiry comes as a result of investigations
launched by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). The
investigations will continue, and the agency will issue its own
preliminary determinations on July 22, the tribunal said in a
release June 21.
The CBSA and the CITT started an anti-dumping and
countervailing duty investigation into imports of Chinese
silicon following a complaint by Becancour, Quebec-based Quebec
Silicon LP, which is majority-owned by Globe Specialty Metals
