China will continue to impose anti-dumping duties on acetone imports from Japan, Singapore, the Republic of Korea and the region of Taiwan for another five years from June 8, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said on June 5.
The decision was made after a year-long review of previous anti-dumping measures at the request of domestic acetone producers, the MOC said in an online statement. The anti-dumping duties were first imposed on June 9, 2008.
Acetone is a chemical material primarily used to produce bisphenol A and serves as an organic solvent. It is widely used in the medical and paint industries.
