According to the Thai Office of Commercial Affairs in Chicago, the US Court of International Trade has dismissed the appeal filed by COGSI. The coalition accused Thailand and six other shrimp-exporting countries of violating the anti-dumping rules and demanded that further counter-dumping duties be levied on the accused.
The judges said the investigation into the charge of damage to the US shrimp industry found no linkage to the seven shrimp exporting countries. Vietnam, China, Ecuador, India, Malaysia and Indonesia are among the countries facing the same allegation.
The court’s ruling has saved Thailand, China, Vietnam, India, and Brazil from having to pay more countervailing duties. It will also enable Thailand to increase its shrimp export to the US.
