The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of plastic decorative ribbon from China that are allegedly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.

Chairman Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Vice Chairman David S. Johanson, and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson and Meredith M. Broadbent 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, with its preliminary countervailing duty determination due on or about March 22, 2018, and its antidumping duty determinations due on or about June 5, 2018.

The Commission's public report Plastic Decorative Ribbon from China (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-592 and 731-TA-1400 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 4763, February 2018) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.

The report will be available after March 13, 2018; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
