Mexico continues AD duty on wire mesh from China
An existing antidumping duty (AD) on imports of hexagonal galvanized steel wire mesh will continue following a review of a string of AD duties on a range of steel imports.
Steel Guru, citing www.bnamericas.com, reported that Mexican ministry confirmed that the existing duty will remain in place and unchanged at 0.45 cents per km. It noted that the duty was first set at $2.80 a kg in 2002 and lowered to the current rate in 2009. The story said that the duty was one of multiple duties that had been initiated as part of efforts to protect Mexican industry from unfair trade practices. There had been complaints that Chinese imports were being sold "at distorted prices" that were harming Mexican producers, it said.
