This goods has shown signs of evading the trade remedy measures that the US has been applying to similar goods of China since 2016, with a tax rate of 139-267%.

The basis for the DOC to initiate an investigation is based on Vietnam’s export manufacturers importing stainless steel flat material from China, then processing in Vietnam and exporting to the US.
