The Hindu Business Line reports that India’s Commerce Ministry has initiated an anti-dumping investigation into the imports of nylon tire cord fabric from Belarus, following a complaint by the domestic industry represented by the Association of Synthetic Fibre industry. The probe was requested by SRF Ltd and Century Enka Ltd. The period of investigation is from April 1, 2007 to March 31, 2008, while the injury investigation covers the fiscal years 2004-05, 2005-06, and 2006-07 over and above the period of investigation.

As previously reported on this blog, India also has initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty on nylon tire cord fabric imported from China. India’s domestic tire cord industry has requested the review and seeks to have the current anti-dumping duty both continued and enhanced.
