The Brazilian Department of Trade Defense (DECOM) will hold the final hearing on an anti-dumping investigation into cold-rolled steel imported from Vietnam and other countries on July 16.
Brazil has accused China, Germany, the Republic of Korea, Finland, Taiwan and Vietnam of dumping their steel products on its market.
The Vietnam Competition Authority, under the Ministry of Industry and Trade, said DECOM asked defenders to send their presentation in writing 10 days before the hearing and revised reports 15 days after the hearing.
On April 13, 2012, DECOM under the Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade (MDIFT) began an anti-dumping investigation into cold-rolled steel imported from those six countries.
On December 19, 2012, it held the first hearing with relevant agencies, including importers, exporters and relevant government officials, who presented comments and opinions on the issue.
