WASHINGTON, June 16 The U.S. International Trade
Commission said on Friday it made a final finding that exports
of steel concrete reinforcing bar, or rebar, from Japan and
Turkey hurt U.S. producers, ensuring that anti-dumping and
anti-subsidy duties on the key building material stay in effect.
The U.S. Commerce Department earlier made a final finding on
May 16 that Japanese and Turkish producers dumped rebar in the
U.S. market and that Turkish rebar exports were subsidized.
