She needs to take Valium. She continues to post the same crap in different threads.

Hey OB, have you noticed that no one cares about you or your posts? That's gotta hurt. You have cried 'wolf' on this forum so often, no one pays any attention anymore.

There's a huge a$$ hint there. Are you smart enough to pick up on it?

Trade Case Alert: Canadian anti-dumping duties imposed for certain fabricated industrial steel components from China, Korea and Spain
Author(s): Riyaz Dattu, Peter Glossop, Taylor Schappert

May 29, 2017

Our last international trade brief dealt with Robert Lighthizer being sworn in as the U.S. Trade Representative, Chinese semiconductors potentially becoming the next target of a national security probe, and a Trade Case Alert involving a Canadian anti-dumping and countervailing investigation being initiated for silicon metal from various countries. In this brief, we discuss how the NAFTA renegotiations could impact Canadian businesses, the imminent implementation of the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, and a Trade Case Alert relating to Canadian anti-dumping duties being imposed for certain fabricated industrial steel components that can be anticipated to affect various infrastructure projects.

On May 25, 2017, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) issued a decision, following a public hearing held earlier this month, that concluded imports of fabricated industrial steel components (FISC), from China, Korea (excluding FISC exported by Hanmaek Heavy Industries Co., Ltd.) and Spain (excluding FISC exported by Cintasa, S.A.) had injured the Canadian industry as a result of dumping and subsidization.

The CITT’s decision will finalize the duties imposed on a provisional basis as of January 25, 2017 by the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA). All importers of FISC originating in China, Korea and Spain (with the exception of FISC exported by Hanmaek and Cintasa) will be required to pay anti-dumping duties based on the amount by which the normal value exceeds the export price of the subject goods. Where sufficient information is not provided or is not otherwise available to determine the normal value, the normal value will be determined by advancing the export price by 45.8%.

It should be noted that this case is unique for the breadth of its coverage based on the definition of FISC, which will include structural steel and components for buildings and facilities used in a wide range of industries, including oil and gas, mining, industrial power generation, petrochemical plants, cement plants, fertilizer plants and industrial metal smelters.

Given this exceptionally wide definition of FISC and the fact that the defined products are used across multiple industries in a variety of ways, companies in these industries will need to be mindful when sourcing fabricated steel in the future to consider whether the goods meet the definition of FISC and, therefore, may be subject to anti-dumping duties if imported from China, Korea or Spain.

As with all anti-dumping and countervailing duties findings of the CITT, the duties will apply for five years, subject to reinvestigation by the CBSA (generally annually) to ensure the percentage of duties payable continues to be appropriate. Before the end of the five-year period, the CITT will undertake a “sunset review” of its previous injury finding to determine if it should be extended for another five-year period. It is not uncommon for these findings to remain in place well in excess of 10 to 15 years.

Stay tuned: Trump about to make an announcement re N> Korea. S.Korean delegation in Washington bringing what might be an invitation from Kim. (CNN reporting )


North Korean leader has invited Trump to a meeting, U.S. officials say
North Korea's Kim Jong Un has asked President Trump for talks, an invitation delivered by South Korea's national security adviser, according to U.S. officials.

After a year in which North Korea fired intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching all of the United States and tested what is widely thought to have been a hydrogen bomb, any break in the tensions between the two countries would likely be welcomed around the world. There has never been a face-to-face meeting, or even a phone call, between the sitting leaders of the two countries.

President Donald Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May, South Korea's national security adviser announced at the White House.

Nothing changes. In typical NK fashion, there will be home press showing KJU attempting to be the good guy, but the evil Americans and SK government were threatening and unfair. Smiles. Cameras. Promises, but little will be accomplished. This is not a cynical POV. It is the way NK has played the game for years. They must need something.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Un's playing for time and space. The playing field is not good for him. South Korea now has a liberal president who's willing to deal, instead of the conservative no-talks type they had. And China and to a lesser extent the Soviet Union are tired of him.

He's also looking closely at China, and wondering if, by following Xi Jinping's example, he can modernize NK while retaining his grip.

The playing field has never been good for them. They are sandwiched between two potential aggressors. China will not put up with any nonsense. NK knows this, so the only thing that they can try to do is to reduce US influence in the region. You know that's not going to happen, but they have to keep trying.

NK should be more concerned with angering China. They are right on the border and the world would not care if NK was crushed by them. China would not be consolidating power, widening their influence or threatening the rest of the world. The political rhetoric aside, the US wouldn't be too concerned if China went in and kicked some ass there.

That would be a good thing. Even if nothing much results from it.

Well it sure is a heck of a lot better than hearing them continually haranguing each other with threats of nuclear annihilation. Who knows, they just may find out they actually like each other. Personality wise, they sure seem to have a lot in common.

Agree... And if Trump * Kim can pull this off effectively and by the timeline he mentioned........ Cudos to them both........ IF they follow through . Kim seems to have orchestrated this quite smartly. Seems he has an understanding of the TRump mindset.

If nothing else......this is New and fresh.......from the stagnation of years past.
