HÀ NỘI – Turkey has decided to levy an anti-dumping tax of US$240 per cubic metre on Vietnamese plywood products.

The Việt Nam Competition Authority under the Ministry of Industry and Trade on Tuesday said that the Turkish Ministry of Economy (TMoE) has issued its final decision on the anti-dumping investigation into plywood imported from some countries including Việt Nam.

The TMoE reported that only two Vietnamese businesses won’t have the anti-dumping tax imposed upon them, as they had provided full information to investigative agencies on schedule and proved that the exported products were made by themselves.

The decision will come into effect soon now the TMoE has officially announced it. However, Vietnamese plywood producers could send feedback on the investigation before this Friday.

Turkey initiated an investigation on May 27, 2015 into a possible avoidance of anti-dumping tax on plywood with HS codes 4412.10; 4412.31; 4412.32 and 4412.39 imported from some countries including Việt Nam since 2010.

Earlier in 2006, Turkey imposed anti-dumping duties of $240 per cubic metre on similar products from China.

The Vietnam Embassy’s trade office in Turkey said on Monday that the TMoE’s General Directorate of Imports (GDI) also issued its decision on the anti-dumping investigation into polyester textured yarn imported from some countries including Vietnam.

Accordingly, it will impose anti-dumping margins of 34.81 per cent to 72.56 per cent on products from Việt Nam and 8.48 per cent to 37.69 per cent on Thai products. It said relevant businesses could send petitions and feedback before September 5.

It will hold hearings for each business on September 7 and open hearings on September 8.

The decision will be submitted to the Minister of Economy in late September to issue a final decision in the first week of October.

The GDI began investigations on May 15 2015, after Korteks Mensucat Sanayive Tic. A.S. lodged its anti-dumping lawsuit on imported polyester textured yarns with HS codes of 5402.33. -- VNS
