ITC votes to move forward on probe of steel exports

(VOV) - The US Department of Commerce (DOC) will continue its investigation into whether Vietnam’s carbon-quality steel pipe (CWP) exports to the US are undercutting and significantly damaging the US steel industry.

The announcement was made by the Vietnam Competition Authority (VCA) on January 15, following a decision by the US International Trade Commission (ITC) that there was reasonable cause to believe Vietnam may be dumping steel in the US market.
