Beijing – Brazil will levy a five-year anti-dumping duty on Chinese tires, according to the country’s Ministry of Commerce as reported by China Daily.
The weight-related duty is cited as ranging from $1.08 to $2.17 (€0.81 to €1.63) per kilo.
The China Rubber Industry Association is reported as saying that a Brazilian anti-dumping investigation into Chinese tires started last year, focussing mainly on 13-inch and 14-inch car tires.
In 2008 and 2009, Brazil conducted an anti-dumping investigation and levied duties on cars imported from China.
China Daily quotes statistics showing that Brazilian tire production in the first four months of 2013 increased by 4 percent compared to the same time last year, while Brazilian car production increased by 17 percent.
Brazil said in June it was conducting anti-dumping investigations on passenger car tires imported from South Korea, Thailand, South Africa, Russia and Japan.
