PSA positive about process against dumping [News, CHIPS]

The International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (Itac) has initiated its own investigation into the alleged dumping of frozen potato chips from Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany onto the South African market. This is part of the process of renewing anti-dumping duties.

The commission failed to complete a sunset review application to retain anti-dumping duties for another five years in the prescribed time. This led to the dumping of cheap imported frozen chips in the local market. Willie Jacobs, chief executive officer of Potatoes SA, says they are excited that Itac has been quick to take control of the situation. He says this is a positive indication as Itac is prioritising the renewal process.
