Shoe Manufacturers Association files anti-dumping complaint against Asian waterproof rubber footwear entering Canada



    MONTREAL, Nov. 2 /CNW/ - The Shoe Manufacturers Association of Canada
(SMAC) has filed a complaint with the Anti-Dumping Directorate of the Canada
Border Services Agency requesting that it re-impose dumping duties on
waterproof rubber footwear from the Peoples Republic of China, Vietnam and
Macao.
    "Rubber footwear from these countries accounts for more than $200 million
in sales a year in Canada. It's imperative that the injury finding on
waterproof rubber footwear that expired almost two weeks ago, be reinstated
immediately," said George Hanna, SMAC President. "Canadian manufacturers can't
compete fairly when the largest shoe manufacturers in the world sell their
products well below their fair market value," he added.
    The complaint was filed on behalf of Canada's waterproof rubber footwear
manufacturers.
