China Extends Anti-Dumping Duties on Imported Trichloroethylene

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce has extended anti-dumping measures on imports of trichloroethylene from Russia and Japan for another five years, starting 22 July.

The move follows the final judicial one-year review's decision to continue the anti-dumping measures to protect the domestic trichloroethylene industry, reports China Daily.

The Ministry of Commerce said it had decided to maintain the punitive duties of up to 159% on all trichloroethylene made in Russia and Japan.

Trichloroethylene is used as a cleaning agent in the production of home electronic appliances.
