USITC: subsidized glass containers from China do not injure U.S. industry

As a result of the Commission’s negative determination, no countervailing duty order will be imposed on imports of this product from China

The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that a U.S. industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of glass containers from China that the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) has determined are subsidized by the government of China.

Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Jason E. Kearns, Randolph J. Stayin, and Amy A. Karpel voted in the negative.

As a result of the Commission’s negative determination, no countervailing duty order will be imposed on imports of this product from China.

The Commission’s public report Glass Containers from China (Inv. No. 701-TA-630 (Final), USITC Publication 5068, June 2020) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigation.

The report will be available by July 14, 2020; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
