The whole story of the dumping complaint of plastic bag manufacturers in the United States

two large plastic retail handbag manufacturers in the United States have filed a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission (ITC), accusing Vietnamese, Taiwan and Indonesian enterprises of dumping plastic bags into the U.S. market. As hilexpolyco Company and superbagcorp Kingspaldingllp, the legal representative of the company, also claimed in the complaint filed on March 31 that the Vietnamese government provided subsidies to domestic manufacturers

joedorn, a partner in the Washington office of this law firm, said, "in the past three years, exports from Taiwan, Vietnam and Indonesia to the United States have increased significantly, affecting the sales of polyethylene bag products of American enterprises."

In an interview on April 14, Dorn said that the number of plastic bags exported by these three countries and regions more than doubled from 6.8 billion in 2006 to 14.6 billion in 2008, and the market share of the three countries in the United States doubled from 7% to 15%

Dorn said that during the same period, the export volume of plastic bags in the above three countries and regions almost tripled, from US $63.5 million (506.9 million yuan) in 2006 to US $182 million (1.27 billion yuan) in 2008

ledanhvinh, Deputy Minister of industry and Commerce of Vietnam, said that the complaint of American enterprises was "completely unreasonable". In an interview with the national media, he said that the Vietnamese government did not subsidize the plastic processing industry, and believed that if the United States imposed countervailing tariffs on Vietnamese plastic bags, it would be contrary to the U.S. government's policy of not imposing compensatory tariffs on non market economies

ITC will not determine whether the imports of products from Vietnam, Taiwan and Indonesia have caused substantial damage or threat to U.S. manufacturers until May 15, and will report the investigation results to the U.S. Department of commerce one week later. According to U.S. law, the Ministry of Commerce will investigate and impose anti-dumping duties and countervailing duties on plastic bags exported by these countries to the United States by the end of April 2010

five years ago, due to a similar complaint filed by local enterprises, the U.S. government began to impose an anti-dumping duty of 20% to 12% on plastic bag manufacturers in China, Malaysia and Thailand. It analyzed the indicators that should be paid special attention to when selecting tensile machines for soft packaging testing. The anti-dumping duty of 2% is still in effect. According to the sunset clause in U.S. law, such taxes will be reviewed this year

the anti-dumping complaint is aimed at a company selling the same product in the United States at a lower price than in its own country, or at a price lower than the production cost of the product. The countervailing duty complaint is aimed at a foreign government providing financial subsidies for the production, manufacturer or export of a certain product

dorn said, "we believe we will win the lawsuit. We have evidence to prove that the price of plastic bags imported from these countries and regions to the United States is lower than" their selling price in their own countries, and it can also prove that the export of plastic bags from these three countries has had a negative impact on the "market share" of plastic bag manufacturers in the United States. Here is a reminder for consumers to pay attention to profit margins and production. " "We have evidence that imports with unfair prices stole our sales."

Dorn said that the complaint filed this time claimed that the dumping margin of Indonesian enterprises was 37%-51%, that of Taiwan was 74%-100%, and that of Vietnam was 31%-75%. He said that the complainant could not count the amount of subsidies provided by the Vietnamese government

H has more price advantage. Kenpierce, a partner of the Washington office of ugheshubbardandreedllp, said that since the anti-dumping ruling made by ITC and the U.S. Department of Commerce in 2004, many Chinese retail bag manufacturers have moved plastic bag packaging plants to Vietnam to avoid U.S. anti-dumping taxes

according to the statistics of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Vietnam is currently the second largest exporter of plastic retail bags to the United States, and its export volume has soared from slightly more than 19million dollars (151.7 million yuan) in 2006 to nearly 86million dollars (598.8 million yuan) in 2008. The United States now imposes an import tax of less than 5% on Vietnamese plastic bags

Vietnam: the U.S. request for anti-dumping litigation is very unreasonable

Vietnam's Deputy Minister of industry and trade, Le Myung Yong, said a few days ago that it is completely unreasonable for U.S. companies to file anti-dumping and countervailing lawsuits against plastic bags exported from Vietnam. Li Mingyong pointed out that first, the Vietnamese government strictly implemented the commitments made by the organization in the further trial of the WTO case and complied with various provisions including relevant subsidies. It is certain that the Vietnamese government has not given subsidies to the plastic industry. Second, on the premise that the U.S. government has not recognized Vietnam as a market economy country, the U.S. Department of Commerce has never studied and comprehensively analyzed the current economic situation of Vietnam. It is completely unreasonable for some U.S. companies to file countervailing lawsuits against Vietnamese goods, and it also violates the practice of the U.S. Department of commerce that the United States should not adopt the Countervailing Law as a non market economy country
