A delegation of anti-dumping officials from the US Commerce Department arrived in China to investigate Chinese television makers and determine whether they are selling television sets in the US below market value. Sichuan Changhong Electric Co, the world's largest television producer, was one of the manufacturers visited by the group.
The US placed anti-dumping duties on color televisions produced in China on November 24, accusing manufacturers of selling the sets at prices under their true market value.
The Commerce Department is to make its final decision on the matter in April 2004. The results will be reviewed by the International Trade Commission the following month.
