The government said that India is investigating imports of copper tubes and pipes from Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam to find weather manufacturers in these countries were receiving unfair subsidies.
These imports are facing countervailing tariffs.
The circular said that they have found the clues regarding increased imports mainly from Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam from past 4 years.
The imports under investigation are shipped from April 2019 to March 2020.
“We strictly follow the World Trade Organization (WTO) rules”, said by Vietnamese foreign ministry.
The whole matter is still under investigation as foreign ministry wants the trade issues between Vietnam and India should be considered objectively, fairly and transparently in accordance with WTO rules.
