The Chinese Ministry of Commerce has decided to levy anti-dumping duties on imported ethanolamines originating from the United States, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Thailand for the next five years beginning from October 30, 2018.

The Ministry of Commerce said that it had made an announcement under ref 2017-67 on October 30, 2017, to launch an anti-dumping investigation on imported ethanolamines from the United States, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Thailand. The final ruling of the Ministry of Commerce justifies that dumping occurred when ethanolamines originating from the United States, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Thailand were exported to China. The Chinese ethanolamines industry suffered substantive damage, and there was a connection between the dumping and substantive damage.
