In accordance with the Anti-dumping Regulations of the People's Republic of China and Regulations of the People's Republic of China on Countervailing, on February 4, 2018, the Ministry of Commerce respectively issued Announcement No.12 and Announcement No.13 of 2018, deciding to carry out anti-dumping and countervailing investigation against imports of grain sorghum originating in the United States.

On April 17, 2018, the Ministry of Commerce announced its preliminary decision on anti-dumping, deciding to take temporary anti-dumping measures as of April 18.

In the course of investigation, the investigation authority received a large number of downstream users' reports, believing that the case investigation would increase the cost of the downstream breeding industry and anti-dumping and countervailing measures against imports of grain sorghum originating in the United States would affect the cost of living of consumers, which is not in the public interest. After investigation, the investigation authority found that the price of domestic pork has been declining in the near future, and the livelihood of many farmers is facing difficulties, in which case, taking of anti-dumping and countervailing measures against imports of grain sorghum originating in the United States is not in the public interest. Relevant matters are hereby announced as follows:

I. Terminating the anti-dumping and countervailing investigation against imports of grain sorghum originating in the United States.

II. Refunding the temporary anti-dumping deposit collected pursuant to the MOFCOM Announcement No.38 of 2018 in full.

The Announcement is hereby given.
