CITT releases findings of its public interest inquiry re: concrete re-bar

Published by Brad Fougere on December 22, 2015

OTTAWA – Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters welcomes findings issued today by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) in its public interest inquiry into duties and countervailing measures applying to concrete re-bar originating in or exported to Canada from China, South Korea and Turkey.

In particular, the tribunal found that public interest in this case does not warrant a reduction or elimination of anti-dumping and countervailing duties applied to dumped re-bar entering BC from markets such as China.

"Today’s decision marks an important affirmation of how trade remedy protections are central to ensuring a competitive and fair Canadian marketplace for steel products, and affords domestic re-bar producers and their suppliers a more equal opportunity to compete and win against foreign competition not playing by the rules, said CME President and CEO Jayson Myers.

CME’s General Counsel and Director of Global Business Services, Philip Turi, represented CME and its members during this public interest inquiry.
