US: Keeps duty on Chinese wire hangers
The US International Trade Commission (USITC) is to keep an anti-dumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers imported from China.
Revoking the existing anti-dumping duty order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time, USITC said.
All six Commissioners voted to keep the duty.
The move comes under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act.
