Wiley Successfully Advises U.S. Solar Manufacturers in Successful ITC Preliminary Subsidy Determination

June 7, 2024

This morning, the International Trade Commission (ITC) made its preliminary determinations in the antidumping and countervailing duty (AD/CVD) investigations recently filed by The American Alliance for Solar Manufacturing Trade Committee (AASMTC) challenging the unfair and illegal trade practices of Chinese-headquartered companies in Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam that are causing immense volatility and cost uncertainty to the U.S. domestic solar market. Details regarding the petition can be found here.

Below is a statement from Timothy C. Brightbill, the lead attorney representing The American Alliance for Solar Manufacturing Trade Committee.

"Our seven AASMTC members and supporters and their U.S. workers commend the International Trade Commission for its affirmative preliminary determinations in these important investigations into the unfair and illegal trade practices of solar producers in Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam."

"The preliminary investigations provided substantial and detailed evidence of these four countries engaging in illegal dumping and subsidizing of solar cells and modules, which is harming our companies and American workers and causing injury as well as creating tremendous volatility and cost uncertainty in the U.S. domestic solar market."

"Because of the unfair trade practices of these largely Chinese-owned and -headquartered companies, billions of dollars of unfairly priced solar products have crushed the U.S. market, causing prices in the U.S. to fall by more than 50 percent in the last year. This makes it nearly impossible for U.S. manufacturers to compete, and endangers the critically important investments being made in solar manufacturing all across the United States. We now look forward to the U.S. Department of Commerce moving ahead on its important investigations of dumping and subsidies by all four countries."

Wiley’s team representing the petitioner also includes International Trade partners Laura El-Sabaawi and Stephanie M. Bell.
