China reimposes duties on US broilers

 

 

China has reimposed anti-subsidy duties on US broiler imports, a year after the previous five-year duties expired in August last year.

 

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce (Mofcom) said on Monday that the new five-year timeline starts August 30.

 

China imposed the duties in September 2010, claiming that chickens were subsidised in the US and then dumped on the Chinese market at below-market prices, according to a China Daily report.

 

In a statement, Mofcom said the anti-subsidy duties on the imports were set at about 4%.
