Honey from China
USITC MAKES DETERMINATION IN FIVE-YEAR (SUNSET) REVIEW CONCERNING HONEY FROM CHINA
The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on imports of honey from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of this product from China will remain in place.
Chairman Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Vice Chairman David S. Johanson, and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson and Meredith M. Broadbent voted in the affirmative. Commissioner Jason E. Kearns did not participate in this review.
Today’s action comes under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. See the attached page for background on this five-year (sunset) review.
The Commission’s public report Honey from China (Inv. No. 731-TA-893 (Third Review), USITC Publication 4776, April 2018) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the review.
The report will be available by May 7, 2018; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
