Viet Nam is among several countries to face India’s anti-dumping investigation on plain medium density fibre (MDF) board with thickness of less than 6mm, the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) has said.

The Indian Ministry of Commerce’s Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) has began its investigation into alleged dumping of products coded 4411.12, 4411.13, 4411.92, 4411.93 and 4411.94 originating in or exported from Viet Nam, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia, the authority said.

The period of investigation is from January to December 2019 (12 months). The DGTR would also look into the data during the period from April 2016 to 2019.

The DGTR would send questionnaires to known producers/exporters while other producers/exporters of those products need to actively contact the DGTR to get those questionnaires, said MoIT’s Trade Remedies Authority of Viet Nam.

They are required to send answers, feedback and relevant materials within 60 days since the notification on this investigation was issued on April 22.

The authority has recommended associations and producers/exporters to have comprehensive cooperation with DGTR during the investigation. If not, the investigators have the right to use available data for analysis.

Meanwhile, the authority is available to support them during the investigation.

Besides that, they should also exchange information about this case with their partners in India to ensure their interests in India, it said. — VNS
