Dumping fee imposed on wallpaper imports to Egypt
The Anti-Dumping Subsidy Fund of the Egyptian Ministry of Economy and Foreign Commerce has agreed to investigate 37 dumping lawsuits against various Chinese and other international wallpaper suppliers.
A six-month dumping fee will reportedly be imposed as a precaution until investigations are completed, according to Al-Gumhuria daily. This temporary fee may later become permanent, should investigations reveal that these imports are damaging to the Egyptian wallpaper industry.
Most of Egypt’s paper demands are currently met by imports, despite the fact that the country maintains some manufacturing capability. Approximately 75 percent of paper and cardboard are supplied by foreign sources. ― (MENA Report)
