China has launched anti-dumping probe against the single-mode optical fiber imports from India after allegations from the local industry that they were being sold at artificially low prices. Single-mode optical fibers are mainly used in high-rate and long-distance transmissions for TV cables and Internet networks.
China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOC) announced that it has launched an anti-dumping investigation into single-mode optical fibers imported from India in response to a petition filed by the domestic industry. The MOC will investigate whether Indian companies have sold single-mode optical fibers at an artificially low price in China and damaged Chinese businesses, an official statement said.
The investigation is expected to last for one year, but it may be extended to February 14, 2015.
