China Retains Antidumping Tariffs On Us Distillers Grains Ahead Of Trumpxi Talks
BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s Ministry of Commerce said on Wednesday it will maintain anti-dumping and anti-subsidy tariffs on imports of U.S. In a statement the ministry cited potential damage to domestic producers in its decision to retain anti-dumping duties of 42.2%-53.7% and anti-subsidy tariffs of 11.2%-12% on DDGS products from the United States. “U.S. DDGs products might re-enter Chinese market in large volume, and hit the domestic sector, if anti-dumping and anti-subsidy tariffs on the product were terminated,” the commerce ministry said in the statement on its website. Beijing launched the review amid trade talks between Beijing and Washington aimed at ending the prolonged China-United States trade war that has roiled global markets. Sino-U.S. trade tension escalated again in early May, with the two sides hiking up tariffs on each other’s products, virtually halting talks. But optimism that the row could be resolved had grown ahead of a meeting between Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping next week.
With hopes for a trade deal rekindled, the timing of Wednesday’s move left some market participants perplexed. “The result is expected but the timing to announce it is a little surprising,” said a manager at a major domestic ethanol and DDGs producer in China. He declined to be identified as he was not authorized to talk to media. If a trade deal were to be agreed, it might see China moving to import a large volume of U.S. “I think China is stating its attitude, saying ‘We are prepared. If you want a war, we can keep fighting’,” said a trader with a state-owned firm. The trader declined to be named due to the sensitivity of the matter. China’s anti-dumping tariffs on U.S. DDGS were first implemented in 2016 at a rate of 33.8%. Imports of the feed ingredient from the United States fell sharply. 684 million, according to Chinese customs data.
It is very easy to manage testimonies, and keep track of the status of each case. We also like your file management tool, because it is very organized. What do you dislike? Clio does not have features for managing non-profits programs, and its cashflows are not updated fast enough. Your billing is slow, and you can not customize it enough. Its fraud detection system is not as reliable, as it does not offer enough security within the platform. We also do not like that it does not serve adequately to handle accrual accounting, nor the catering of law firms. What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized? With Clio we have greatly improved our management of accounting forecasts, and our organization of budgets for cases. It is also easier to track expenses of financial projects, as well as cost estimates. Another advantage we have noticed has been that we can now manage checks with much more convenience.
Clio is excellent for the treasury. What do you like best? Each individual matter's main interface has everything you need to know at a glance. What do you dislike? The program is somewhat cumbersome. I end up putting most of the pertinent information into the Notes section instead of the main interface, because it's not logically organized. I like the product, but definitely see room for improvement. I came into a firm without familiarity with other cloud-based systems, so I don't have much to compare with Clio. On its own, it does the job and keeps information organized and accessible. I do think it could be streamlined. Sometimes navigating back and forth among tabs and matters becomes bulky; perhaps Clio could allow more than one matter "open" at once. Were I involved in the selection process, I would do my homework among the case management software available before selecting Clio. What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
