Got Plywood? NWO Kills U.S. Plywood Industry Jobs. Denies Petition To Stop Chinese Plywood DumpingSubmitted by Barracuda_Trader on Fri, 01/03/2014 - 00:31
Dumping petition rejected
In September 2012, Columbia and five of its competitors, representing about 80 percent of the hardwood plywood made in the United States, formed the Coalition for Fair Trade of Hardwood Plywood and filed a petition with the U.S. International Trade Commission to put a stop to Chinese dumping.
"The reality is our folks are getting crushed by the Chinese practices," Welch said.
Welch testified before the ITC this past September, urging it to impose tariffs on Chinese plywood imports to ensure a "level playing field."
In its decision to vote against the coalition's petition, the ITC cited growth in the U.S. hardwood plywood industry from 17.2 percent of the market in 2010 to 22.7 percent in the first half of 2013. The ITC also maintained the Chinese, while supplying some 35 percent of the market, supplied only the low-end product — plywood used for interiors, backs and drawer bottoms of cabinets — "while the domestic product is used for cabinet fronts and sides."
I guess Obama Barracchio lost his Laser Focus on Jobs.
