This is theDOC’s preliminary conclusion after investigating tra fish exported by certainVietnamese companies for the period August 1, 2017 through July 31, 2018, theMOIT said in a statement.

The DOCdetermined that Vietnamese mandatory respondent – NTSF Seafoods JSC – andseperate rate respondent – Can Tho Import Export Seafood JSC (CASEAMEX) – wereboth subject to rates of 0.00 USD per kg while a “Vietnam-wideentity” anti-dumping rate of 2.39 USD per kilogramme was applied to all other Vietnamese exporters.

Last year, underthe final result of the 14th periodof review (POR14), a finalrate of 3.87 USD per kilogramme was imposed on Hung Vuong Group while the rate was 1.37 USD per kilogramme for NTSF, CP Vietnam Corporation, Cuu Long Fish JSC, Green Farms Seafood JSC and Vinh Quang Fisheries Corporation.

The department would issue the final results of the POR15 within 120 daysof publication of its preliminary rates and this is likely to happen aroundFebruary next year, the MOIT said.
