We find that the information presented by Petitioner regarding this criterion supports its requests to initiate an anticircumvention inquiry. The Department believes that Petitioner sufficiently addressed the factors described by section 781(b)(2) of the Act regarding whether the processing of pre-formed hangers in Vietnam is minor or insignificant. Specifically, in support of its argument, Petitioner relied on information from the LTFV investigation, the ITC report, and information in the FMR’s report. Thus, we find that the information presented by Petitioner supports its requests to initiate an anticircumvention inquiry. In particular, we find that Petitioner’s submissions suggest that: (1) Little investment has been made by either Angang or Quyky company in their respective production of hangers in Vietnam; (2) Angang’s and Quyky’s Chinese affiliates have fully integrated production facilities in the PRC and, therefore, that research and development presumably takes place in the PRC rather than Vietnam; (3) the gluing of capes to shirt hangers or attaching tubes to strut hangers in Vietnam does not alter the fundamental characteristics of the hanger, nor whether it is subject to the scope of the Hangers Order; (4) Angang’s and Quyky’s facilities have a lower investment level by those companies than that required by the typical capitalintensive nature of the wire-drawing and hanger-forming processes; and (5) assembling paper components to preformed hangers adds little value to the merchandise imported to the United States. Our analysis will focus on Angang’s and Quyky’s assembly operations in Vietnam and, in the context of this proceeding, we will closely examine the manner in which these companies’ processing materials are obtained, whether those materials are considered subject to the scope of the Hangers Order, and the extent of processing in Vietnam, as well as the manner in which production and sales relationships are conducted with the alleged PRC affiliates. With respect to the value of the merchandise produced in the PRC, pursuant to section 781(b)(1)(D) of the Act, Petitioner relied on its information and arguments in the ‘‘minor or insignificant process’’ portion of its anticircumvention requests to indicate that the value of the steel wire may be VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:46 Jul 21, 2010 Jkt 220001 significant relative to the total value of a finished hanger with paper accoutrements exported to the United States. We find that the information adequately meets the requirements of this factor, as discussed above, for the purposes of initiating an anticircumvention inquiry. Finally, Petitioner argues that, pursuant to section 781(b)(3) of the Act, the Department should also consider the pattern of trade, affiliation, and subsequent import volumes as factors in determining whether to initiate the anticircumvention inquiry. The U.S. import data submitted by Petitioner suggests that imports of steel wire garment hangers from Vietnam have been rising significantly since the issuance of the Hangers Order in 2008, whereas in years prior to 2008, there were no such imports from Vietnam into the United States. Accordingly, based on Petitioner’s submissions, we have determined that we have a sufficient basis to initiate a formal anti-circumvention inquiry concerning the Hangers Order, pursuant to section 781(b) of the Act. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(l)(2), if the Department issues a preliminary affirmative determination, we will then instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation and require a cash deposit of estimated duties on the merchandise. These anti-circumvention inquiries cover Angang and Quyky only. If, within sufficient time, the Department receives a formal request from an interested party regarding potential circumvention of the Hangers Order by other Vietnamese companies, we will consider conducting additional inquiries concurrently. The Department will, following consultation with interested parties, establish a schedule for questionnaires and comments on the issues. The Department intends to issue its final determination within 300 days of the date of publication of this initiation. This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Act.
