A US trade commission has determined that imports of Chinese containers do not harm the US glass packaging industry.

In a ruling last week the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) said the US glass packaging industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by imports of glass containers from China which the US Department of Commerce had determined were subsidised by the Chinese government.

As a result of the Commission’s negative determination, no countervailing duty order will be imposed on imports of the product from China.

The Commission’s public report Glass Containers from China (Inv. No. 701-TA-630 (Final), USITC Publication 5068, June 2020) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigation.

The report will be available by July 14, 2020; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp
