The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) will continue its investigations into imported wine bottles from China, Chile and Mexico.

It determined on Friday that there is a reasonable indication that the US glass industry is materially injured by reason of imports of glass wine bottles from the three countries.

It said the bottles are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidised by the government of China.

The probe was requested last month by a coalition including domestic producer Ardagh Glass and United Steelworkers.

The commission’s preliminary countervailing duty determinations will be due on or about March 25, 2024, and its preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about June 6, 2024.
