On 17 March 2017, the Australian Anti Dumping Commission has announced its decision to terminate part of the antidumping and countervailing investigation on imported A4 copy paper from Indonesia and China based on following reasons:
· The total volume of goods that have been exported to Australia from Indonesia during the whole of the investigation period in respect of which countervailable subsidies have been received is negligible
· In relation to PT Indah Kiat Pulp & Paper Tbk, PT Pindo Deli Pulp And Paper Mills, PT Pabrik Kertas Tjiwi Kimia Tbk (Tjiwi Kimia) and Riau Andalan Kertas, countervailable subsidies have been received in respect of all of the goods, but the subsidies never, at any time during the investigation period, exceeded the negligible level of countervailable subsidies
· The goods exported by Tjiwi Kimia were not dumped; and
· In relation to UPM (China) Co., Ltd and UPM Asia Pacific Pte Ltd (collectively UPM), countervailable subsidies were received in respect of all the goods but the subsidies never, at any time during the investigation period, exceeded the negligible level of countervailable subsidies
JWK Law Office has successfully represented Riau Andalan Kertas and the Government of Indonesia for the above countervailing investigation.
The antidumping and countervailing investigation was initiated on 12 April 2016 against imports from Brazil, China, Indonesia and Thailand for the antidumping investigation and on imports from China and Indonesia for the countervailing investigation.
