MBIE has responsibilities relating to trade and trade remedies. As a part of this role, MBIE conducts investigations under the Trade (Anti-dumping and Countervailing Duties) Act 1988 (the Act) into alleged dumping and subsidies, as well as reviews of duties imposed by previous investigations.
The purpose of the consultation paper was to obtain stakeholders' views on MBIE’s proposed approach to assess each matter specified in section 10F(3) of the Act. The consultation document was set out in two parts; Part 1 discussed how the considerations in 10F(3)(a)-(h) of the Act could be analysed, and Part 2 discussed a proposed economic model to inform MBIE’s analysis of some of the factors covered by Part 1 of the consultation paper.
Submissions on the proposed content were received through written feedback from Business NZ, Metals New Zealand, New Zealand Steel Limited, New Zealand Food & Grocery Council, and Heinz Wattie’s Ltd.
