Taiwanese levy swingeing duties on US memory firms

Micron named as key culprit

Reports said that the Ministry of Finance in Taiwan is set to impose punitive import duties on three US memory companies. Back in March, Taiwan took similar action, in response to alleged anti-dumping by US firms. The tariff will amount to a temporary 62 per cent duty on Micron Semiconductor, Micron Technology and Chip Supply. The government department did not say when the tariffs would start or for how long they would last. But the size of the punitive duties suggests the Taiwanese government is sending a clear message to the US companies. And that is, keep off our turf. ®
