US halts “dumping” of Japanese supercomputers

Sales to .gov agencies halted

Asian reports said that the US International Trade Commission (ITC) has ruled that Japanese sales of supercomputers into its home market will damage American-built boxes Last month, NEC asked the US Supreme Court to stop the Commerce Department from dumping SX-4 machines into the home market. Now, if Japanese companies attempt to sell their super-tin to US government agencies, such sales will be prima facie, construed as dumping. That will mean punitive anti-dumping duties will be levied. ®
