United States: LOS ANGELES TIMES – "U.S. Plans Duties on Chinese Furniture"
Last Updated: July 1 2004

Robert Walters, an intellectual property litigation partner in Pillsbury Winthrop’s Northern Virginia office, comments on a trade dispute between the U.S. and China regarding imported furniture. Domestic manufacturers contend that Chinese factories with low-cost labor and government subsidies sell goods in the United States at artificially low prices, called "dumping." The Bush administration is proposing to apply additional duties on Chinese furniture which would put domestic furniture makers in a more competitive position. Notes Walters, "It may have repercussions for other manufacturing industries in the United States."
