Chinese plastic bags: can they escape US sanctions

on June 9, the U.S. Department of Commerce made a final determination on the case of retail shopping bags, and found that the retail shopping bags imported from China had dumping behavior, and the average tax rate increased from 18.43% at the time of the preliminary determination to 23.06%

among them, an enterprise in Shenzhen has significantly increased from 4.45% in the preliminary determination to 19.73%, and an enterprise in Nantong expanding the external market has significantly decreased from 18.43% in the preliminary determination to 2.29%

according to Wang Jianyu, a lawyer from Guangdong Haipai law firm, who acted as the agent of the case, nine exporters/producers were selected for compulsory investigation in this case, which was the highest in history. Before that, the U.S. Department of Commerce had not set a precedent for mandatory investigation of more than four enterprises in a case, but unfortunately, in the end, only seven enterprises succeeded in obtaining separate tax rates, and the other two enterprises did not choose appropriate lawyers, Therefore, it not only loses the qualification of compulsory investigation of enterprises and does not obtain a separate tax rate, but also obtains the highest tax rate, namely 77.33%

since China has not been recognized as a market economy country by the United States, the cost of China's exports to the United States is calculated by referring to the substitute country, that is, quoting the cost and other data of market economy countries (substitute countries) that are roughly equivalent to the economic development level of the exporting country, calculating the so-called normal value and then determining the dumping margin. In the case of retail shopping bags, India and Sri Lanka from import to their own production Indonesia and the Philippines are candidates for replacement countries, and India is finally selected as the replacement country

the U.S. International Trade Commission will make a final determination within 45 days after the final determination of the U.S. Department of Commerce. At that time, if the U.S. International Trade Commission also determines that retail shopping bags originating in China cause material damage or threaten material damage to similar industries in the United States, the U.S. Department of Commerce will issue an anti-dumping order, Notify the U.S. Customs to pay cash deposit when importing the above products at the anti-dumping rate enjoyed by the same company

Wang Jianyu said that at the preliminary determination stage of the U.S. International Trade Commission, Chinese enterprises failed to actively respond to the lawsuit. Now GSB law firm, which is acting as the agent of the case, is actively organizing enterprises nationwide to respond to the lawsuit on the process parameters of all extrusion processes, such as melt pressure and temperature, body temperature of each section, rotation speed of main screw and feeding screw, feeding volume and Guangdong Haipai law firm. It is reported that the representatives of relevant enterprises have gone to Washington, D.C., and will testify at the recent hearing of the U.S. International Trade Commission, determined to fight the final decision of the U.S. International Trade Commission
