And whereas, in the matter of review of anti-dumping on import of the subject goods, originating in, or exported from, the United States of America, Japan, the European Union and Singapore, the designated authority vide its final findings No. 15/25/2006-DGAD dated the 26th December, 2007, published in the Gazette of India, Extraordinary, Part I, Section 1, dated the 26th December, 2007, has come to the conclusion that-

(a) the subject goods have entered from the United States of America at less than its normal value and the dumping margin of the subject goods imported are significant, while current dumping margins of subject goods imported from the European Union and Singapore are negligible;

(b) there is a likelihood of dumping to continue from the United States of America and of intensification or recurrence of dumping from Singapore and Japan if the duties are revoked; there is less likelihood of intensification of imports from the European Union if duties are withdrawn;
(c)  the domestic industry suffers insignificant material injury at present due to the dumped imports, but there is a likelihood of recurrence of injury if duties are withdrawn;
