China MOC says Corning did not engage in fiber dumping

Corning Inc. has announced that the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) of the People's Republic of China affirmed the company's original position that it had not dumped standard single-mode optical fiber into the Chinese market.

The MOC's final determination concluded that Corning had not dumped standard single-mode optical fiber into the Chinese market since the margin between its home country pricing and its pricing into China was less than the threshold set by the government ministry. Thus, the government has decided not to impose a dumping margin against Corning imports.

China's MOC also ruled that optical fiber imports from the United States, Korea and Japan collectively hurt the domestic Chinese fiber industry. The MOC has assigned individual dumping margins to specific companies from these countries found guilty of dumping optical fiber.

China's MOC initiated its anti-dumping investigation on July 1, 2003 against certain standard single-mode optical fiber products originating from the United States, Japan and Korea, alleging that foreign products were being imported and sold at lower prices than the market conditions justified, and that Chinese domestic producers were injured as a result. The investigation was based on a complaint filed by two Chinese fiber manufacturers against several optical fiber producers.
