US to impose duties on Indian glycine

The US International Trade Commission has concluded that glycine imports from countries like India, China and Japan are damaging the interests of the US industry. The Commission has inferred that the import price is less than fair value and is being subsidised by the governments in China and India. Backed by this information, the US Department of Commerce is planning to issue anti-dumping duties on the product from India and Japan and countervailing duty on imports from China and India. 

US import of glycine from China, India and Japan was estimated at US$ 18 million in 2017, followed by Thailand at US$ 4.6 million.
