The Indian Ministry of Commerce and Industry‘s Directorate General of Trade Remedies launched an investigation into the case in April 2020.

Before the investigation, Viet Nam’s export of MDF boards with thickness below 6mm to India reached 2.3 million USD in 2019, reported the General Department of Viet Nam Customs.

The TRAV also reported that India’s Directorate General of Trade Remedies announced the extension of the deadline for the submission of answers regarding the end-of-term review of anti-dumping measures on elastomeric filament yarn originated from China, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan (China) and Viet Nam till August 20, 2021.

Parties concerned should send answers via the email;;;

The TRAV asked the Vietnamese producers and exporters to thoroughly read guidelines, submit answers before the deadline, and work closely with the TRAV if they need support.

Any behaviour showing unwillingness or uncooperativeness could result in evidence for the further imposition of anti-dumping duty, thus reducing competitiveness, losing part or the whole market share to other competitors or countries and territories, it said.
