International Trade and Customs Department report | New Antidumping Investigation: China, Sri Lanka, India, Malaysia, and Bangladesh

Dear Sir or Madam,

On August 6th, 2019, the Argentine Secretariat of Foreign Trade issued Resolution No. 97/2019, by means of which it decided to open a new Antidumping Investigation intended to determine whether the exports to Argentina of “gloves, made of knitted fabric one hundred percent (100%), textile material, coated, even partially, with latex or nitrile” (tariff code 6116.10.00), from the People’s Republic of China, Republic of India, the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and Malaysia are being performed under dumping conditions and causing or threatening to cause material injury to domestic industry. The national producer that requested the initiation of this anti-dumping procedure is RANDON S.A.

In order to open this investigation, the National Commission of International Trade determined that the exports from the investigated origins would have been performed under the following dumping margins (i.e., the difference between the sale price in the domestic market and the FOB export price):

• China: 167,03%
• India: 36,84%
• Bangladesh: 558,06%
• Sri Lanka: 365,63%
• Malaysia: 66,90%

In addition, the National Commission of International Trade concluded that the Argentine industry of the product under investigation would be suffering a significant injury because of the aforementioned exports.

All those importers and exporters who are interested in participating in this procedure, have thirty (30) extendable days to complete and file the questionnaires and documents that will allow them to be considered as a party to the anti-dumping proceeding.

It should be noted that the exporters who submit these documents completely within the indicated period, will be entitled to request the Authorities an individual determination of the margin of dumping.
