The Interdepartmental Commission on International Trade (ICIT) has decided to apply the final antidumping duties on the import of cement from Turkey to Ukraine for a period of five years, which, depending on the manufacturer, will range from 32.64% to 50.54%.
As stated in an announcement in the Uriadovy Kurier newspaper on Tuesday, the decision of the ICIT of September 2, adopted after considering a complaint from Ukrainian cement producers, will enter into force 30 days after publication.
