WASHINGTON , October 22, 2010 (press release) – The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that a U.S. industry is threatened with material injury by reason of imports of certain coated paper suitable for high-quality print graphics using sheet-fed presses from China and Indonesia that the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) has determined are subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.

Chairman Deanna Tanner Okun and Commissioners Daniel R. Pearson, Shara L. Aranoff, Irving A. Williamson, and Dean A. Pinkert made affirmative determinations on the basis of threat. Commissioner Charlotte R. Lane made an affirmative determination.

As a result of the USITC's affirmative threat determinations, Commerce will issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of these products from China and Indonesia.
