The United States no longer recognizes the Russian market economy: now Russian goods will rise in price in America
The US will no longer treat Russia as a market economy, the US Department of Commerce (USDC) said. The Russian Federation was deprived of the status that it was granted two decades ago. He limitingal charging anti-dumping duties on Russian goods. Now the restriction has been lifted, and prices for Russian goods in the United States will rise significantly. Writes about it to Reuters.
The agency, citing analysis, said that "widespread" government intervention in the Russian economy has led to a distortion in prices and costs, which USDC believes do not accurately reflect whether Russian companies fairly value imports to the United States. Therefore, lowering prices can be purposeful. And such a phenomenon is called dumping, that is, the sale of goods at prices below contract prices in international commodity markets, provided that the low price level is not determined by the corresponding level of costs for the production of this product.
And anti-dumping is the fight against such a phenomenon and the protection of both suppliers and customers from unfair competition.
"This decision gives the United States the opportunity to use the full force of US anti-dumping laws to address market injustices caused by the Russian government's increasing interference in their economy," the Commerce Department said in a statement.
The consequence of this will be an increase in duties on goods from the Russian Federation, which will lead to an increase in prices for goods imported from Russia.
Washington granted Russia market economy status in 2002, an important step for Russia's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2012.
