The Turkish Ministry of Economy has decided that the anti-dumping duty on motorcycle tires from Vietnam will stay for another term of five years, the Vietnam Competition Authority confirmed Wednesday.
The Turkish ministry announced its decision on Tuesday after investigating of imports of tires from Vietnam.
It set the tariff between 29 and 49 percent, similar to the original rates imposed in 2004.
In 2004, Turkey for the first time levied the duty on motorcycle tires from Vietnam in response to a complaint lodged by Anatolia Rubber Ind. and Trade Inc.
In 2010, it reviewed the measure for the first time and chose to keep it. Last year, it reviewed the duty again.
