China launches probe into stainless steel imports from EU, Japan, S.Korea, Indonesia
China’s Commerce Ministry said on Monday it has launched an anti-dumping probe into imports of stainless steel billet and hot-rolled stainless steel sheet and plate from the European Union, Japan, South Korea and Indonesia.
The move follows a complaint by Shanxi Taigang Stainless Steel, it said.
China imported 703,000 tonnes of those products in 2017, with 98 percent coming from the regions targeted by the investigation.
