U.S. slaps duties on China aluminum foilStaff Writer | February 28, 2018
The U.S. Commerce Department slapped stiff duties on aluminum foil from China after concluding that the country’s producers are receiving unfair subsidies and dumping the product in the American market.
Trade tensions The ruling by Commerce
The issue now goes before the U.S. International Trade Commission, which is expected to have the final say on the injury claims in a vote scheduled for March 15, the Aluminum Association said.
The ruling by Commerce adds to tensions between the U.S. and China, which has rejected the claim that it gives its aluminum producers an unfair advantage. ■
