Washington, DC, Preliminary Duties on Subsidies on Imported Shrimp

On December 28, 2012, the Coalition of Gulf Shrimp Industries, a new organization, filed petitions with the USA Government seeking relief from subsidized shrimp imports from seven countries: China, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.   The petitions seek the imposition of countervailing duties on their shrimp exports.


On May 29, 2013, the USA International Trade Commission (ITC, an independent, bipartisan, quasi-judicial, federal agency of the United States) and the USA Department of Commerce (Subsidies Enforcement Office) filed their preliminary report on the petitions.
