US to continue shrimp dumping investigation
The U.S. Commerce Department announced Friday that it was launching countervailing duty investigations on frozen warmwater shrimp from China and other six countries.
The investigations are in response to the petition filed by the U.S. Coalition of Gulf Shrimp Industries, who alleged producers and exporters of China, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam have received financial assistance from governments.
In 2011, the United States imported frozen warmwater shrimp from China at an estimated USD 153.7 million (EUR 115.4 million), 8.4 percent less than 2010, according to the U.S. government's data.
