Commerce Supports Continued Duties On China

Last week, the Department of Commerce issued affirmative determinations in the sunset review of both antidumping and countervailing duties on hardwood plywood and multilayered wood flooring from China. The two rulings represent critical steps in maintaining the duties for another five years and support the positions of the Coalition for Fair Trade in Hardwood Plywood and the American Manufacturers of Multilayered Wood Flooring. Both coalitions include DHA members. The U.S. International Trade Commission will complete its review later this spring or summer.
