Titan applauds feds' decision to continue investigation

Aug. 22, 2007

"We are very encouraged that the Commerce Department voted to proceed with (its) investigation" of Chinese OTR tire dumping, says Titan International Chairman and CEO Morry Taylor.

"We still have a long way to go, but the important part of this process is determining what is fair and lawful.

"American working men and women can be as competitive as anyone in the world, but when foreign governments subsidize and carry unlawful trade practices, then the U.S. government must level the playing field."

The U.S. International Trade Commission recently determined there is a "reasonable indication that an industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of certain off-the-road tires from China that are allegedly subsidized and sold in the U.S. at less than fair value."
