Chinese aluminium foil makers prepare Mexico anti-dumping defence

SHANGHAI, Sept 20 (Reuters) -

* A group of Chinese aluminium foil producers facing an anti-dumping probe in Mexico are organising a legal defence ahead of possible duties, according to a Chinese industry official.

* Mexico’s Secretariat of Economy said last month that it was starting an anti-dumping investigation into aluminium foil originating in China and would calculate damages over a three-year period from 2015-17.

* Wen Xianjun, a vice president of the China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association who coordinated a legal defence for foil makers before the United States International Trade Commission (USITC), said another “no injury” defence was being prepared for the Mexico case.

* “We will do it very quickly,” Wen told Reuters on the sidelines of a conference in Shanghai.

* He did not how exactly many companies were taking part in the joint defence.

* Wen said the amount of aluminium foil exported by Chinese companies to Mexico was “not big”, putting the annual value at “perhaps under $100 million” per year. (Reporting by Tom Daly Editing by Joseph Radford)
