Provisional anti-dumping duties imposed on pasta imported from Egypt, Latvia, Lithuania and Turkey

Provisional anti-dumping duties have been imposed on pasta imported from Egypt, Latvia, Lithuania, and Turkey. The anti-dumping duties came into effect on 1 April 2021 and will remain in place until 16 September 2021. Thereafter, final anti-dumping duties may or may not be imposed. However, considering that ITAC has already made a preliminary finding of dumping, final anti-dumping duties are most likely.
