As a result, because all parties to the proceeding agree to the outcome of the review, the Department concluded that expedited action is warranted in this review.16 With the information provided, we preliminarily find Youyou as the successor-in-interest to Lizhong and, as such, that it is entitled to Lizhong’s cash-deposit rate with respect to entries of subject merchandise. Should our final results remain the same as these preliminary results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assign entries of subject merchandise exported by Youyou the antidumping duty cash-deposit rate applicable to Lizhong effective the date of publication of the final results.
