Honduran concern over rebar anti-dumping exclusion

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Honduras' steel industry is worried over the possible exclusion of the country's existing antidumping duty of 15 percent over all types of imported rebar, market sources said Monday.

Several sources said the government is studying the possibility of excluding the antidumping measure in the coming months, which would "harm local operations," they said.

"Most of the rebar consumed domestically is produced in Honduras, and the rest enters mainly from Central American countries," one source said. "But without the AD tax, imports could increase significantly."
