On March 25th, 2009, the Argentinian authorities decided to initiate an anti-dumping investigation on imports of denim from China (Resolution 86/2009, 25/03/2009).

The investigation started on the day following the publication of the resolution in the Official Journal of the Argentinian Republic, i.e. on March 31st, 2009.
