ITC rules in favor of petition against unfairly traded laminated bags
The ITC’s affirmative vote means that U.S. importers of these products from China will be required to pay high duties to offset unfair pricing and Chinese government subsidies. This will restore fair competition in the U.S. market.
The vote is the final determination in investigations that began on June 28, 2007, when the Laminated Woven Sacks Committee filed antidumping and countervailing duty petitions with the ITC and the U.S. Department of Commerce. The members of the Committee are Bancroft Bag Inc.; Coating Excellence International LLC; Hood Packaging Corp.; Mid-America Packaging LLC; and Polytex Fibers Corp.
