US Aluminum Association welcome foil ruling
The US Aluminum Association welcomed the ruling from the Department of Commerce that some importers from Russia as well as four other different countries are dumping some aluminium foils on the American market.
The Commerce Department revealed that aluminium foil experts from Russia, Armenia, Oman, Turkey, and Brazil have been filling up the US market with the below-market products.
The commerce department imposed final countervailing and antidumping duties on some aluminium foil exporters.
The duties imposed were in the range from 5.82% to 63.05%.
“Today’s decision is another sign that the United States is committed to combatting unfair trade through strong enforcement of international trade rules,” said Tom Dobbins, president and CEO of the Aluminum Association.
“These determinations bring domestic aluminium foil producers one step closer to securing relief from a second surge in unfairly-traded imports that hit the industry just as it was beginning to recover from an earlier wave of dumped foil from China.
“The U.S. aluminium foil industry, which has invested more than $500 million in recent years to expand production and supply customers, includes the most competitive producers in the world,” added Dobbins.
“But U.S. manufacturers should not have to compete with products that are sold at unfairly low prices and subsidised by foreign governments in violation of the trade rules that we all must follow.”
