Ukrainian galvanized metal manufacturers have been harmed by the increase in imports from China and Russia.
According to Metinvest Holding marketing director Roman Kurashev, unless state authorities take measures, the situation could worsen.
“Following the protective measures taken by Europe, US, Canada and Turkey, we expect a considerable increase of imports from China and Russia, which will worsen the position of the Ukrainian galvanizing industry. So we expect the authorities to introduce antidumping measures as duties to stop dumping”, he said.
Moreover, the galvanized metal coming to Ukraine at dumping prices is of low quality. (Ukrainian metal)
