Partner Skip Hartquist Quoted in Platts Commodity News
November 19, 2007
Partner Skip Hartquist was quoted in a Platts Commodity News article titled "SSINA counsel says Chinese practices threaten U.S. specialty metals". In the article, Hartquist discusses the threat that China’s exports pose to the international steel industry, providing examples of how China's stainless steel industry has benefited from preferential industry programs. Recent actions by the U.S. Department of Commerce to initiate countervailing and antidumping duty cases against China and proposed Congressional legislation on currency manipulation have given the U.S. stainless steel industry encouragement that the federal government is focusing on key Chinese unfair trade practices.
