The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) has decided to keep anti dumping tax on pangasius imported from Vietnam at least in the next five years, according to the Vietnam Competition Authority under the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The decision was made following the commission’s second investigation review for anti-dumping duties on pangasius imported from Vietnam with 100 percent of votes in favour.

The USITC stated that the revocation of the tariffs on the Vietnamese goods would be likely to lead to “continuation or recurrence of material injury” to the US’s frozen-fillet industry within a foreseeable time.-VNA
