Extrusion Aluminum – Australia Anti-Dumping Commission terminated a part of the anti-dumping and countervailing investigation

On May 24, 2017, Australia Anti-Dumping Commission (“ADC”) terminated part of the anti-dumping and countervailing investigation against imports of certain extrusion aluminums from Vietnam and Malaysia.

Anti-dumping Investigation 

ADC found that for the goods exported from some Malaysian exporters, there was no dumping or the dumping was negligible, thus terminating the investigation against these exporters.
Other Malaysian exporters and all Vietnamese exporters are continuously investigated.

Countervailing Investigation 

ADC found that all Vietnamese exporters and some Malaysian exporters were not subsidized or have subsidy margins at negligible levels. Therefore, ADC terminated the investigation against these exporters. 
Other Malaysian exporters are continuously investigated.

Before that, on August 16, 2016, ADC initiated the investigation into the alleged dumping and subsidization of certain extrusion aluminums imported from Vietnam and Malaysia. The volume of imports of extrusion aluminums from Vietnam is 7,174 tons accounting for 9.2% of total import into Australia.
In this investigation, Vietnam was alleged having 03 subsidy programs granted to exporters, including: (i) preferential import tariffs; (ii) corporate tax incentives; and (iii) incentives on non-agricultural land tax.
