U.S. to pursue trade dispute over Chinese, Taiwanese solar imports

Imported solar energy products from China and Taiwan could harm the local solar industry, U.S. trade officials found on Friday, potentially opening the door to widening the duties on the products. The U.S. International Trade Commission’s decision means the Commerce Department will continue with its investigation into whether the products are being sold in the United States below their fair value, or if their manufacturers receive inappropriate levels of subsidies, and suggest duties. Follow-up decisions from both the ITC and the Commerce Department are needed before duties are finalized. The commissioners voted that there was a reasonable indication of injury, following a complaint brought by the U.S. arm of German solar manufacturer SolarWorld AG .
