China extends anti-dumping tariffs on Indian optical fiber



(AP) China’s Commerce Ministry said Thursday it has extended punitive tariffs on Indian optical fiber products for five years.


The announcement follows a yearlong review after a previous tariff expired in 2019. It takes effect Aug. 14.


It is unclear if the move is in any way related to a recent bout of antagonisms between the Asian giants linked to a border clash in which 20 Indian soldiers died.


The tariffs on single-mode optical fiber range from 7.4% to 30.6% and were first imposed in August 2014.


Optical fiber is used in telecommunications networks.


Earlier this month, India kept in place tariffs on Chinese-made solar power products that were imposed to protect its own manufacturers.
