April 29, 2010



Decision cracks down on illegal Chinese and Indonesian coated paper imports

WASHINGTON D.C.- Congressman Steve Kagen, M.D. released the following statement upon the announcement that Department of Commerce’s affirmative preliminary determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) investigation on imports of coated paper.

"This is yet another victory for Appleton Coated and brings us one step closer to establishing balanced trade deals that ship our values overseas instead of our jobs," said Dr. Kagen. "It is time for Asian nations to begin to play by our rules, not theirs."

As a result of these preliminary determinations, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect a cash deposit or bond from Chinese and Indonesian paper imports when they enter the United States.

"I commend the Commerce Department for their decision to defend United States manufacturing by cracking down on illegal paper imports,” continued Kagen, “and I will continue to work hard to level the playing field for companies like Appleton Coated.”

US Commerce Department is currently scheduled to make its final determinations in September 2010.

See the attached fact sheet for more details on the preliminary determination released today.
