China Feed Association backs US DDGS exports


The China National Feed Industry Association said Friday (Aug 12) it will continue to maintain strong ties with US exporters of distillers' dried grains (DDGS), a corn-based animal feed that is the subject of a bilateral trade dispute.


The association will also try to request a "very limited" duty on US DDGS in China's pending anti-dumping investigation, the council said.


Trade tensions over these US exports to China heightened late last year, after the US Trade Representative complained about Chinese wind-power subsidies, apparently sparking a Chinese retaliatory anti-dumping probe into the feedstock in December.


However, China grain officials have suggested the probe will likely favour "lower-than-expected" anti-dumping duties.
