SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China has extended antidumping (ADD) duties on imports of monoethanolamine and diethanolamine from the US, Japan, Malaysia and Taiwan for another five years, the country's Ministry of Commerce said on Tuesday.

The measure came into effect from 14 November this year after one-year final review investigation indicated that ceasing of the ADD would harm the domestic ethanolamine sector, the Ministry of Commerce said.

China started to levy the ADD on the imports from the US, Japan, Iran, Malaysia, Taiwan and Mexico from 14 November, 2004, which ended in November last year, according to the ministry.

Under the latest decision, the imports from Iran and Mexico were exempted from this round of ADD duties, the ministry said but did not give any details.

The ADD levied in the above four countries ranged from 5.3%-74%, the ministry said.
