Countervaling Duties on Shrimp Declined by U.S.
The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) voted against countervailing duties on shrimp imported from seven countries including China, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Ecuador.
In a 4-2 vote today, the ITC determined there was no injury or threat of injury to U.S. industry by the import of frozen warmwater shrimp from these countries.
Countervailing duties already paid in should be refunded directly to the importer of record by Customs and Border Protection.
