The Mexican government has not reacted to an announcement from the US Department of Commerce that it would impose an 18.48% tariff on imports of Mexican steel kegs due to supposed dumping.
The news, however, has been covered by almost all Mexican media since the US agency said that following an investigation, it had determined that Mexican exporters had sold their products at prices lower than that of the United States.
According to the US notification, the petitioner of the tariff is American Keg Company LLC.
The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) is scheduled to make its final injury determination on September 26, 2019.
However, if the USITC makes negative final determinations of dumping, the investigations will terminate and no orders will be issued. The Mexican side has yet to comment.
