BEIJING, May 19 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) on Monday announced anti-dumping and anti-subsidy measures on imported barley from Australia.
The domestic industry has been subject to substantial damages, and a causal relationship exists between the dumping and damage to the domestic industry, the ministry said in a final ruling after investigations into the imports.
From Tuesday, anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties will be respectively collected at rates of 73.6 percent and 6.9 percent for a five-year period, the ministry said on its website.
After receiving applications from the China Chamber of International Commerce, the MOC launched anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations into the products on Nov. 19 and Dec. 21 of 2018, respectively.
The latest decision was made in line with Chinese laws and the World Trade Organization (WTO) rules, the ministry said.
