Anti-subsidy

In a petition filed on March 9, 2017, the Aluminum Association Trade Enforcement Working Group requested that countervailing duty investigations be instituted against imports of aluminium foil from China.

On February 27, 2018, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative final determinations in the antidumping duty and countervailing duty  investigations of imports of certain aluminum foil from China.

In the CVD investigation, Commerce has calculated subsidy rates of 19.98 percent for Dingsheng Aluminum Industries (Hong Kong) Trading Co., Ltd, 17.14 percent for Jiangsu Zhongji Lamination Materials Co., Ltd., 80.97 percent for Loften Aluminum (Hong Kong) Limited, and 80.97 percent for both Manakin Industries LLC and Suzhou Manakin Aluminum Processing Technology Co., Ltd. The subsidy rates for Loften Aluminum (Hong Kong), Manakin Industries LLC, and Suzhou Manakin Aluminum Processing Technology Co., Ltd. were determined entirely on the basis of adverse facts available due to their failure to provide information as requested by Commerce. All other companies are assigned the “all-others” subsidy rate of 18.56 percent.
