China extends anti-dumping duties on US chicken


China has decided to maintain anti-dumping duties on imports of US white-feather broiler products for another five years, effective September 27, said the Ministry of Commerce.

The duties are mostly set at 60.7%, with Pilgrim's Pride, Tyson Foods and Keystone Foods incurring 73.8%, 49.5% and 46.6%, respectively. Earlier, China decided to impose five more years of anti-subsidy duties on US chicken. Both the duties expired last September, and a new investigation by the commerce ministry found that “the domestic broiler industry could be jeopardised if the duties stopped”.
