Anti-dumping measures on Chinese garlic generates unease in Brazil

Brazil's Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade (MDIC) has until September 20 to define the new anti-dumping duty for garlic imported from China. Applied by the Brazilian government in 1996 and renovated in 2001 and 2007, the duty is a measure that the government uses to protect domestic producers of garlic who are forced to compete with the much cheaper Chinese product.

The director of the Department of Commercial Defence, Felipe Hees published the information last Thursday in a public hearing in the Committee on Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development and Supply.

According to Hees, the current antidumping tariff is US$ 0.52 per kilo of imported garlic. To set the anti-dumping duty, the Ministry is examining the prices of garlic. Part of the research includes the analysis of the mayor Chinese exporters' export prices.

Due to a peculiarity of the rules, one of the steps is to identify some of the exporters' individual margins.
