|US extends investigation into wooden cabinets from Vietnam.|
Previously, on March 17, the DOC issued a preliminary determination on the investigation with the allegation that the items had components such as doors, drawer fronts, and wooden frames produced in China and were combined with parts manufactured in Vietnam. Therefore, they are subject to trade remedies the US is levying on similar products of China.
According to TRAV, since April 2020, the US has imposed anti-dumping and subsidy duties on wooden cabinets originating from China with anti-dumping duties ranging from 4.37 per cent to 262.18 per cent and anti-subsidy duties ranging from 13.33 per cent to 293.45 per cent.
On May 24 and June 7, 2022, the DOC initiated the investigation into the product scope and anti-circumvention of wooden cabinets imported from Vietnam.
