Chinese Anti-Dumping Case Addressed by USGC

Chinese Anti-Dumping Case Addressed by USGC

Council is leading registration process to respond to claims.

Last week on Dec. 28, 2010, the Chinese brought an anti-dumping case against the United States. They claim that the rapid increase of sales of dried distillers grains from the U.S. to China has hurt domestic DDGS prices.

Thursday U.S. Grains Council President and CEO Tom Dorr talked about the case with reporters. USGC has been involved in market development in China for over 25 years, and Dorr says while trade challenges are always a challenge, he is confident it can be resolved.

"We believe in the long haul that trade is good," Dorr said. "We think that this too can be resolved in a way that ultimately bears minimal impact on the relationships that exist between our two countries."

The investigation, which will include both injury and dumping, will last a year. The council is hopeful that the issue will be addressed when Chinese President Hu Jintao visits the U.S. later this month.

USCG is coordinating an industry-wide registration process for interested U.S. companies in response to China’s charges. Those interested in participating in this effort must act quickly to be a part of the response to China. Interested parties need to e-mail their contact information to by the close of business on Friday, Jan. 7, 2011.

Each participant will be contacted by legal counsel who will provide the necessary forms and instructions. Those registration forms must be completed and returned to the law firm by the close of business on Monday, Jan. 10, 2011. The law firm will then assume responsibility for translation and submission to China’s Ministry of Commerce by its Jan. 17 Beijing deadline. More information can be found on the Council's Web site
