US Grains Council Pleased with China's Decision to Drop Charges Against US Sorghum Industry

Fri, 18 May 2018 09:54:54 CDT

US Grains Council Pleased with China's Decision to Drop Charges Against US Sorghum Industry U.S. Grains Council President and CEO Tom Sleight issued the following statement upon hearing news of China's decision to drop its investigations into alleged dumping accusations it charged the US sorghum industry with earlier this year:



“We are pleased to see news from China's Ministry of Commerce that it has terminated its anti-dumping and countervailing duty cases related to U.S. sorghum and is revoking preliminary duties on imports of the grain.



"This is critical good news for U.S. sorghum producers and exporters, and U.S. agriculture as a whole. We are grateful for the intense efforts of the White House, U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and, particularly, the U.S. sorghum industry as these cases were considered.



"The U.S. Grains Council has worked closely with partners in China since 1982 in the areas of food security and trade. We highly value our customers there and remain committed to engaging this complex and critical market. U.S. sorghum exports to China are mutually beneficial, and we are grateful MOFCOM looked at the facts of the matter and decided to restore this trade.



"Today’s development is also a step in the right direction for U.S.-China trade relations, and we hope it is a platform for further lessening of tensions and challenges facing U.S. grains exports to China."
