Taiwain: Chinese cement imports hurt local producers
Published: 23 September 2011

A Ministry of Economic Affairs probe into anti-dumping charges against cement and cement clinker imports from China found the Chinese products “had a substantial impact on Taiwan’s cement industry.”

The Chinese imports involve Portland cement type I, type II and its cement clinker, the International Trade Commission (ITC) said in a statement yesterday.

Portland cement type I is suitable for all uses in buildings and roads, while the type II cement is used for reservoirs, piers and heavy retaining walls. Clinker is used in making cement.

The commission said it would send its conclusions to the Ministry of Finance for review.
