The Department of Foreign Trade of Thailand has announced the final decision to extend for another five years antidumping duties on the import of certain types of hot-rolled steel from 14 countries, including Ukraine with a slight decrease.
According to Steel Orbis, this decision was made following the revision of antidumping restrictions on imports of these products from Japan, South Africa, Russia, Kazakhstan, India, South Korea, Venezuela, Argentina, Ukraine, Algeria, Indonesia, Slovakia, Romania and Taiwan.
The size of the duties is from 0% to 128.11%. At the same time, duties on deliveries from Ukraine will amount to 30.45%-67.69%, from the Russian Federation – 24.2%-35.17%, Kazakhstan – 68.11%-109.25%.
The duty revision procedure was launched in May 2020 following a complaint from local manufacturers.
According to the information of the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine, at present there are duties on the supply of hot-rolled products in coils and not in coils to Thailand produced by Illich steel mill (Metinvest Group) – 32.17%, other manufacturers – 71.52%.
