Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

US chip maker Micron could be hit by anti-dumping tariffs of up to 67 per cent in Taiwan, according to reports over the weekend. The Taiwanese Finance Ministry is considering the matter, and is expected to recommend punitive tariffs by August. The boot is usually on the other foot. Micron, which is about as popular as anthrax in the Far East, has a long record of instigating and urging anti-dumping investigations in the US, and Taiwan was hit again just last week. Taiwan has however started to fight back. The island's International Trade Commission has accused Micron and the US subsidiaries of Samsung and Hyundai of dumping. On the anthrax scale, Samsung and Hyundai don't do particularly well in Taipei either. ® Related stories: Taiwanese sue Micron Huge tariffs on Taiwan DRAM Taiwan evades tariffs?
