US body votes to continue Taiwan anti-dumping probe

Imports worth $290 million between January and September

Influential US body the International Trade Commission (ITC) said that it would continue an investigation into alleged anti-dumping on DRAM of one Mbit and above. A panel voted by five votes to zero to continue the investigation and said it was likely to produce a preliminary report by March next year. That means the US Department of Commerce will pursue its enquiry into the alleged dumping of memories by Taiwan. According to the ITC, $290 million worth of DRAM was imported from Taiwan between January and September this year. There are 14 US producers of DRAM according to the report, which have annual sales of nearly $4 billion. ®
