365体育投注网址The United States International Trade Commission (365体育投注网址ITC) today determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of mattresses from Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Serbia, Thailand, Turkey, and Vietnam that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the government of China. 

365体育投注网址Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Jason E. Kearns, Randolph J. Stayin, and Amy A. Karpel voted in the affirmative.

As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations concerning imports of this product from Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Serbia, Thailand, Turkey, and Vietnam with its preliminary countervailing duty determination due on or about June 24, 2020, and its antidumping duty determinations due on or about September 8, 2020.

Nos. 701-TA-645 and 731-TA-1495-1501 (Preliminary), 365体育投注网址ITC Publication 5059, May 2020) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
