Thailand may slap anti-dumping tax on Vietnam steel sheets

HCMC – Thailand may impose anti-dumping tariffs of up to 60.26% on color-coated steel sheets imports from Vietnam, according to the Vietnam Competition Authority under the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The Department of Foreign Trade (DFT) under the Thai Ministry of Commerce on December 12 released preliminary results of an anti-dumping probe into Vietnam’s color-coated steel sheets, including painted hot-dip galvanized cold rolled steel, or aluminum zinc alloy-coated cold rolled steel, with dumping margins expected to range from 4.51% to 60.26%.

DFT will give relevant businesses and agencies from Vietnam a chance to respond to the investigation results and send evidence to the department by January 6 before a hearing is organized on January 16.

The Thai agency said it had got a dumping investigation petition from NS BlueScope Company for an alleged dumping margin of up to 89.58% in September last year.

Statistics of the Vietnam Competition Authority show that the country’s exported steel products are subject to most anti-dumping lawsuits. As of May 2016, there had been 25 trade cases against Vietnam’s steel products, of which 18 were anti-dumping ones initiated by ASEAN nations like Thailand and Malaysia.

Earlier, the Vietnam Steel Association had requested producers of metallic-coated and color-coated steel sheets to reduce their export shipments and control selling prices to the Malaysian and Thai markets for risks of anti-dumping measures.

Steel firms of these two nations have repeatedly complained about huge volumes of Vietnam’s steel products imported into their countries at low prices, adversely affecting their production.
