Editor Notes

For pesticide industry, it is CCM’s impression that China is always the major target of anti-dumping, but it seldom files anti-dumping against other countries. The latest launched anti-dumping investigation on pyridine imported from Japan and India is a good try. Pyridine companies reveal that the lower priced pyridine from Japan and India has impacted their business and they have to file anti-dumping to defend their rights.

Although domestic pesticide companies may have learned something from coping with anti-dumping in the past years, but they are still a rookie in filing anti-dumping. Domestic pyridine companies said they are not sure if they can win this case.

Besides, some pesticide companies expect the government to launch policies such as increasing export rebate to promote export, which is not necessary according to CCM’s view.
