US sets anti-dumping tariffs on shrimp from China and Vietnam
font size    

The US Commerce Department announced on Tuesday that it tentatively set tariffs on shrimp imports from China and Vietnam.

The tentative tariffs would range from 7.67 percent to 112.81 percent for China and from 12.11 percent to 93.13 percent for Vietnam.

Although the ruling is still subject to further investigation and rulings by the department and the US International Trade Commission, analysts said the ruling will likely be maintained since the two countries are classified as "non-market economy" by the US government.

The case is a part of US shrimp farmers' dumping complaint filed last December against six countries, which also include Thailand, India, Brazil and Ecuador. US government will hand out preliminary rulings on import from other countries by the end of this month.
