Antidumping duty orders on pipe fittings,how should we SEMs respond?

Recently the U.S. government would maintain the existing antidumping duty orders on pipe fittings from China. It seems that the pipe fittings industry remain sits in a tough situation. How should we respond to this antidumping duty if we want to increase our export markets?

Revoking the current antidumping duty orders on these products from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.

It’s still a big problem. And whatever, we should  stand united and haihao pipe fitting group believe that the Chinese Ministry of Commerce will protect the SEMs and give us a better future.
