DOC’s 9 th period of review (POR 9) ruled that, the Vietnamese fishproducts exported to the US from August 1, 2011 to July 31, 2012 willface high tax rates.
Notably, the rates almost doubled to 0.42USD/kg for products of the Vinh Hoan Corp. and 2.15 USD /kg for theHung Vuong seafood company’s products.
Vinh Hoan and Hung Vuong are now among the leading tra and basa exporters in Vietnam.
Rates ranging from 0.99 USD/kg to 2.11 USD/kg will also be imposed on products of other Vietnamese tra producers.
In an interview with US-based Vietnam News Agency’s correspondents onSeptember 4, a representative from the Vietnam Trade Office (VTO) in theUS said that the US decision is unexpected and contradictory.
DOC decided to take Indonesia as a sole benchmark country to calculateand impose the anti-dumping on Vietnamese fish products, althoughIndonesia was not included in the list of countries subject to the rateannounced by the department in November 2011.
According to VTO,Indonesia must not be taken because Vietnam and the country havedifferent economic conditions and tra fish farming and processingindustries.
Vietnamese tra exporters will have four months to appeal the DOC’s decision.-VNA
