NDO - Australia’s Anti-Dumping Commission (ADC) under Australia’s Department of Industry, Innovation and Science has terminated its anti-subsidy investigation into aluminum extrusion products imported from Vietnam.

The details were announced on June 1 by the Vietnam Competition Authority under the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The ADC has determined that Vietnamese producers and exporters did not receive any countervailable subsidies from the Vietnamese government for the product under investigation during the investigation phase nor did the producers and exports receive countervailable subsidies from the government during the investigation period. Furthermore the amount of subsidies did not exceed the minimum.

However, Australia continues to conduct anti-dumping investigations. The ADC issued the Essential Data Sheet, which identifies the preliminary dumping margin for the defendants cooperating in the investigation process from 6.9% to 17.5% and the margin of dumping for Non-cooperative defendants at 34.9%.

In June, 2016, the ADC initiated anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations into aluminum extrusion products imported from Vietnam and Malaysia.

According to the plaintiff, Vietnamese aluminum extrusion products were dumped on the Australian market with a dumping margin of 10.19%. The company also claimed that aluminum product makers received subsidies from the Vietnamese Government, including preferential import tariffs for fixed assets, incentives on corporate income tax and tax incentives for non-agricultural land.
