February 24, 2020 – Today, the American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance (AKCA) is commending the antidumping and countervailing duty final determinations issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce as an important conclusion by the agency to address unfairly traded Chinese imports of wooden cabinets and vanities. The total antidumping and countervailing duties are as follows: Dalian Meisen 269.91%, Foremost 122.1%, Ancientree 13.33%, with all others 58.89%. This means that almost all Chinese manufacturers will now face a combined AD/CVD cash deposit rate of about 59%.
February 21, 2020 --Yesterday the American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance issued a statement regarding their testimony before the International Trade Commission:
On Friday, December 1, the International Trade Commission (ITC) delivered its final ruling in the Hardwood Plywood anti-dumping and countervailing duties case.
The American Alliance for Hardwood Plywood (AAHP) expressed disappointment in today’s ruling by the International Trade Commission (ITC) that it will proceed with an investigation into alleged “dumping” practices of Chinese hardwood plywood to gain an unfair competitive advantage.
The U.S. Court of International Trade issued a decision in the appeal by the Coalition for Fair Trade of Hardwood Plywood of the International Trade Commission’s unanimous final determination that Chinese imports of hardwood plywood neither injure nor threaten with injury the U.S. hardwood plywood industry.
