Mexico started AD investigation against wire rod imports from China

The Mexican economy secretariat, SE, has started AD investigations on imports of wire rod from China, it said on September the 1st, following recent countervailing duties applied on imports of  graphite electrodes for electric arc furnaces from the Asian country.

SE said the period of investigation will go from April 1, 2014, to March 2015, while the period of analysis of the damages and casualness that are reportedly to have affected the local producers will start on 1 April 2012 to March 31, 2015.

The products subject to the AD investigations fall under Customs Tariff Statistics Position Numbers 7213.10.01, 7213.20.01, 7213.91.01, 7213.91.02, 7213.99.01, 7213.99.99, 7227.10.01, 7227.20.01, 7227.90.01 and 7227.90.99, SE said.
