Turkey launches AD duty investigation on certain HR flat steel imports
According to a statement from the Turkish Ministry of Economy published in the Official Gazette dated Thursday, January 28, Turkey has launched an antidumping (AD) duty investigation against hot rolled (HR) flat steel imports from China, France, Japan, Romania, Russia, Slovakia and Ukraine.
The application filed by Turkish domestic steel producers Erdemir, Toscelik and Colakoğlu and supported by Turkish steelmaker Isdemir and Habas suggested that hot rolled flat steel imports from the abovementioned countries are sold at dumped prices and causing damage to the local industry. The application also pointed out that the cheap imports in question put pressure on domestic prices.
