(Yicai Global) Feb. 5 -- China's commerce ministry today agreed to review anti-dumping measures imposed against potato starch from the European Union at the request of local sector representatives.
The domestic industry requested the review on Dec. 7 and asked for the period of the dumping rate to be extended, as it is due to expire soon, the ministry said in a statement. The agency prolonged anti-subsidy measures for five years for the same product in September.
The commerce ministry slapped duties of between 12.6 percent and 56.7 percent on potato starch on Feb. 5, 2013. If the reviewers decide removing anti-dumping duties may lead to the reoccurrence of damages, it can choose to extend the measures.
