China asks US to listen to firms

CHINA’S Ministry of Commerce issued a statement yesterday, urging its US counterpart to pay heed to what enterprises have to say about a preliminary anti-dumping measure.

The US Commerce Department made a preliminary anti-dumping determination on Wednesday regarding imports of washing machines from China. In its preliminary results, the Commerce Department found an anti-dumping margin for washer imports from two joint ventures in China ranging from 49.88 percent to 111.09 percent.

An unnamed official from the ministry’s Trade Remedy and Investigation Bureau disputed the method by which the United States calculated its anti-dumping margins in this case, saying that it obviously did not tally with the facts as it used the surrogate cost of production method.

The ministry urged the US side to listen to the enterprises’ plea earnestly and correct the wrong practices.

The official hoped both sides could address the concerns through dialogue and avoid possible escalation.
