SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China will extend its anti-dumping measure for methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) cargoes imported from Taiwan and Japan for another five years, effective from 21 November 2013, China Commerce Ministry said in a statement.

After a one-year expiry review, the ministry said that the dumping of MEK imports from Taiwan and Japan would continue if the anti-dumping duties (ADDs) on these cargoes end, which will likely affect the domestic MEK industry again.

The ministry released a statement on 21 November 2007 which said that China would levy ADDs of 9.6-66.4% on MEK cargoes imported from Japan, 25% for the cargoes imported from Taiwan, and 17% for the imports from Singapore, which will last for five years.

On 21 November 2012, the ministry started the expiry review on MEK imports from Taiwan and Japan, and decided to end the ADDs on Singapore imports from 22 November 2012.
