The US International Trade Commission voted unanimously to impose anti-dumping duties on Chinese tissue and crepe paper, which it said was priced unfairly. The vote in favor of the duties puts the issue before the US Commerce Department, which is scheduled to make a preliminary decision on whether to impose duties around June 26. The Commerce Department, should it impose duties, will also determine the size of such duties. A group of US companies and union workers requested duties of 110% on tissue paper products and 186% on crepe paper products made in China. More than 50% of the anti-dumping duties imposed by the US in 2003 were on Chinese products.
