Vietnamese seafood companies shrink back in shrimp war
The high anti-dumping tariffs imposed by the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) after the eighth periodic administration of review (PRO8) for Vietnam’s shrimp products have obviously put Vietnamese exporters at a disadvantage.
However, Vietnamese seafood exporters say they don’t have time to weep over the unreasonably high anti-dumping duties. They have to begin preparing for the next period of review — POR9.
According to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP), in preparation for POR9, 30 shrimp exporters will provide information about their production to the DOC for the review. The information will be reviewed by the DOC when considering the tax rates to be imposed on Vietnam’s products for the next period.
