On March 26, the Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) published Announcements No. 6 and No. 7, announcing final determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations on wine from Australia. The investigations determine that dumping and subsidies are occurring, the Chinese industry is materially injured, and there is a causal link between the two. The determined dumping margins range from 116.2% to 218.4%, and subsidy margins from 6.3% to 6.4%. MOFCOM therefore determines the imposition of countervailing duties ranging from 116.2% to 218.4% on wine from Australia as of March 28. According to relevant regulations, countervailing duty will not be imposed, in order to avoid double taxation.
Based on petitions filed by the Chinese wine industry, MOFCOM announced on August 18, 2020 and August 31, 2020 the initiation of AD and CVD investigations on wine from Australia. After the case filing, MOFCOM conducted the investigations and made the above mentioned final determinations in rigorous accordance with relevant Chinese laws and regulations, as well as rules of the World Trade Organization.
The tariff line of the products involved is 22042100 under the Customs Import and Export Tariff of the People's Republic of China.
