Mexico’s Ministry of Economy refused to revoke a resolution to investigate antidumping practices on chicken quarters from the U.S., reported CNN Expansion.
Companies SuKarne and Viz Cattle Corporation demanded to stop an investigation on antidumping practices. Mexico has preliminarily assigned antidumping duties to U.S. chicken leg quarters, ranging from 64 percent to 129 percent, reported the website WATTAg.net. Although these duties have not yet been applied in final form, under Mexican law, a final decision will have to be reached by mid-August, the U.S. National Chicken Council said.
A bipartisan group of 49 congressmen sent a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk on June 1st, expressing their strong concern about those antidumping duties.
However, the Ministry of Economy said that the companies’ appeal was inadmissible because they have not released a final decision on the antidumping duties.
