China to review duties on US chicken imports, Xinhua says

The Ministry of Commerce will review the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties on US white-feathered broiler products after a World Trade Organization (WTO) report said China had violated certain rules, the official Xinhua news agency reported Wednesday. China will review the evidence and information collected during the previous investigation and re-examine them through surveys and hearings, the ministry said in an online statement. China imposed the anti-dumping duties on chicken products imported from the United States in September 2010, claiming the chicken products were subsidized in the US and unloaded onto the Chinese market at a price less than the fair value, the report said. In September this year, the WTO dispute settlement body upheld US claims that China acted inconsistently with certain articles of the anti-dumping agreement in conducting the investigations as well as in the calculation of the duties, it added.
