Mexico Sets Antidumping Tariffs On China’s Wind Turbines

 |  October 6, 2020

From January to July 2020, Mexico imported wind towers worth US$223 million, with a 59.6% share of those from China, reported el Economista

Mexico will impose an anti-dumping quota of 21% on imports of wind towers from China starting this Tuesday, October 6.

The final resolution of the investigation was published by the Ministry of Economy this Monday in the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF).

Precisely in 2018, Mexico registered a record both in total imports, as in China’s, of wind towers, for US$1.069 billion and US$633 million, respectively.

The case began on December 3, 2018, when the companies Arcosa Industries de México and Speco Wind Power requested the initiation of the administrative investigation for unfair international trade practices on the imports of wind towers originating in China.
