New antidumping investigation on lawn mowers.



International Trade and Customs Department report | New antidumping investigation on lawn mowers

Dear Sir or Madam,

On February 3rd 2020, the Secretariat of Industry, Knowledge Economy and Foreign Trade Administration issued Resolution No. 7/2020 whereby it decided to initiate an antidumping investigation intended to determine whether the exports of “certain types of lawn mowers” (tariff code 8467.29.99 and 8433.11.00) from the People´s Republic of China to Argentina, are being performed under dumping conditions and causing or threatening to cause material injury to domestic industry. The national companies that requested the initiation of this antidumping procedure are UNITEC S.A. and FABRICA DE IMPLEMENTOS AGRÍCOLAS S.A.I.C.Y F.

In order to initiate this investigation, the National Commission of International Trade determined that the Chinese exports were performed under a dumping margin (i.e., difference between the sale price in the Chinese domestic market vs. the FOB export price) of 18.91%.

In addition, the National Commission of International Trade concluded that the Argentine industry of the product under investigation would be injured by the Chinese exports.

All those 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 antidumping proceeding.
