China imposes duties on US, Malaysian ethanolamines shipmentsBusiness | 30 Oct 2018 12:12 pm
China's Ministry of Commerce says it will impose anti-dumping duties on ethanolamines imported from the United States, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, and Thailand.
In a final ruling on anti-dumping investigations into the imports, the ministry said yesterday domestic industries have been subject to substantial damage due to the dumping of these products.
Duties will be collected at rates ranging from 10.1 percent to 97.1 percent starting today for a five-year period, according to a statement, Xinhua reports.
The ministry launched anti-dumping investigations into the products in October 2017 after receiving complaints from domestic producers.
Ethanolamines are widely used in the production of surfactants, pesticide and pharmaceutical intermediates, chemical necessities, and personal hygiene products.
