The Merged States has raised tariffs on steel from Vietnam that Washington says engendered in China and evaded anti-dumping duties on Chinese steel.
The announcement applying this week’s truce in a broader trade dispute between Beijing and Washington reflects the spacious array of strains in the world’s biggest trading relationship.
Importers of corrosion-resistant and cold-rolled non-reflective steel from Vietnam will be required to post deposits to pay workable duties of 39 to 256 per cent, the Commerce Department said Monday.
U.S. stiletto producers complained imports of Chinese-made steel through other woods soared after Washington imposed anti-dumping charges in 2015 to redress what it said were improper subsidies by Beijing.
Imports of cold-rolled blade from Vietnam rose from $9 million to $215 million, the Traffic Department said. It said imports of corrosion-resistant steel from Vietnam hillock from $2 million to $80 million.
Products affected by the fashionable tariffs were made in Vietnam using Chinese steel. The Business Department said that triggers the same anti-dumping penalties as protect imported directly from China.
