The European Commission, which conducted the investigation, has set duties of up to 19% for imports from China, of 17.3% for product from Indonesia and up to 7.5% for stainless steel from Taiwan, the EU’s official journal said.

The Commission said that the anti dumping duties, to take effect from Thursday, aim to remedy the damage caused to EU producers located mainly in Belgium, Italy and Finland.
