The Chinese Commerce Ministry has announced its intention to launch an anti-subsidy investigation into some chemical imports from the US. A few days ago, we wrote about China’s anti-dumping probe into propanol imports from the US, and now ethylcarbinol has also been added to the list.

These chemicals are used by food packaging and pharmaceutical industries and have benefited from extensive subsides by the government. The probe launched today and could last about a year.

In addition, the Commerce Ministry has also launched a similar anti-dumping probe into imports of another chemical, meta-Cresol, from the US as well as from the EU and Japan. This investigation was announced in response to applications filed by domestic manufacturers and could go on for about 18 months.
